On Thursday, at about 5:45 p.m., Harris County Sheriff's Office deputies responded to a shooting at The Park at Cumberland Apartments, located at 505 Cypress Station Drive.

When deputies arrived on the scene, they located the victim, Odarrius Broden, 26, lying on the front porch of an apartment. Broden was unresponsive and bleeding from the head, deputies said.

Broden's 21-year-old girlfriend claimed Broden came to her apartment, argued with her, and physically assaulted her, authorities said.

The girlfriend locked Broden out of her apartment, and he forced her front door open, shattering the frame. She then fired one warning shot as they stood in the doorway and continued to argue. She then fired a second shot at Broden, killing him, authorities said.

Broden was pronounced dead on the scene.

Investigators interviewed neighbors and reviewed video from the apartment complex. The girlfriend provided investigators with a statement.
