Harris County Sheriff’s Deputies are investigating the deadly shooting reported in a home on the North of Houston early Friday.
Sheriff Ed Gonzalez tweeted the shooting occurred at about 5:30 a.m. on Lone Oak Road.
According to a preliminary investigation, a boyfriend and girlfriend who live together got into a fight inside the home.
Deputies believe the verbal argument may have developed to a physical fight and that’s when the woman shot and killed the man believed to be in his 20s was found dead.
Detectives said it was too early to determine if there would be charges in the case or if it was self-defense.
The girlfriend is said to be emotional but cooperating.
Multiple friends were at the home at the time, and two of them witnessed the shooting, investigators said.
Officials are yet to disclose the identity of the suspect or the deceased.
