Man was on FaceTime when he was fatally shot at NE Houston home: HPD

HOUSTON, Texas (KTRK) — Police say a man was on a FaceTime call with his girlfriend when he was shot and killed in northeast Houston overnight.

Investigators are now trying to piece together what the motive was in the man’s death.

The shooting happened around 8:40 p.m. Thursday at a home in the 3700 block of Hage Street.

Houston Fire Department paramedics were reportedly the first ones to arrive at the scene. They found a man in his mid-40s who had been shot twice in the chest. He was pronounced dead at the scene.

When Houston police arrived, they cleared the house and found no one else was inside.

Investigators said the man was on FaceTime with his girlfriend and let her know something was wrong. Police said they don’t know if it was just one suspect or multiple who came inside the house and killed the man.

“He was in the living room. We don’t know if they kicked the door in or if they were welcomed in. There’s still a lot of questions,” Lt. I. Izaguirre said.

Investigators said the home has cameras, so they are hoping surveillance video can shed light on what exactly happened.
