A night out with friends turned deadly early Monday morning when a man was gunned down during a suspected burglary at his Houston home. Houston police received a call just before 4:35 a.m. about a shooting on Bremond Street, where they found a victim fatally shot following an altercation with an unknown number of intruders, according to a statement obtained by cityofhouston.news.

Sgt. M. Arrington and Detective D. Stark of HPD's Homicide Division reported that the victim, along with a group of friends, arrived back at the residence to find the home invasion in progress. A scuffle ensued, culminating in one of the suspects firing shots that struck the victim. In an effort to save their friend, the group hurriedly transported the man to an area hospital where he was pronounced dead. The identity of the deceased is currently withheld pending verification by the Harris County Institute of Forensic Sciences.

As of now, police have not released descriptions of the suspects, who are still at large. The community has been left to grapple with the sudden violence that shattered the peace of the early morning, disrupting the sanctuary of what should have been a safe haven.

Authorities are calling on the public for help. Anyone with information regarding the shooting is urged to contact the HPD Homicide Division at 713-308-3600.
