Man shot and killed inside his home in southwest Houston

HOUSTON, Texas (KTRK) -- Police are searching for the gunman who shot and killed a man inside his own home in southwest Houston.

The shooting happened around 12:30 a.m. in the 13000 block of Townwood near Dragonwick Drive.

Authorities told ABC13 the homeowner, who was in his 30s, likely knew the shooter and let that person into his home.

"Most likely someone he knows, allowed him inside his house, hanging out for a bit, then wanted him out, and then the shooting happened," said HPD detective Sean Overstreet.




Four adults were in the house when it happened.

Police say officers are familiar with the home, and that there's a lot of drug usage.

Officials are looking into a motive.

They do not have a description of the shooter at this time.
