The incidents included a 35-year-old who was shot in a Houston parking lot, a man stabbed to death and a woman found dead in a southwest Houston street.

HOUSTON, Texas (KTRK) -- Three people died in separate incidents across the city overnight, including a woman who was found dead in the middle of a busy southwest Houston road.

The woman's body was found in the 9000 block of Bissonnet at Braeswood Boulevard. It wasn't clear what led to her death.

In north Harris County, a 19-year-old was shot in the leg by a pregnant woman late Wednesday, deputies said. It happened on Blue Bell Road near Veterans Memorial just after 10 p.m.

In southeast Houston, a man was stabbed to death at a home late Wednesday. It happened just before midnight in the 1000 block of Globe Street. It appears the man was stabbed in the abdomen, according to Houston police. Residents at the home told investigators the victim had come home from a club but had stepped back outside where he was stabbed. Investigators said they believe the man was actually stabbed inside the house, but aren't sure what led to the killing.

Also in southeast Houston, a man was shot to death outside a Fuqua Street nightclub. It happened around 1:40 a.m. Thursday near Almeda in the parking lot of the Red Rooster Club. At least 10 shots were fired, according to Houston police investigators. There may have been a fight inside the club that spilled out into the parking lot where the shooting happened, investigators said. The body of a 35-year-old man was found, but there were no witnesses to the shooting.
