A weekend visit to Houston turned deadly after a man was shot and killed at an Airbnb he and his friends were renting in spring, according to the Harris County Sheriff’s Office.
Reports of shoots fired came in about 3:10 a.m. from the 3500 block of Braewin Court, the sheriff’s office said.
HCSO Lt. Cook said the victim was found in the doorway of the house when officers arrived. Paramedics took the man to the hospital, where he was later pronounced deceased, HCSO Sheriff Ed Gonzalez tweeted.
According to investigators, four men visiting from New York and New Jersey had booked the space. HCSO Sgt. Ben Bell said they had been partying at a club in downtown Houston when they came back to Spring home with women.
HCSO said one of the men was walking up to the home when an unknown person walked up and shot him. Officials believe the men could have been followed.
“We don’t know if it was a robbery attempt or if it was someone mad about the women that they were bringing back to the house,” Bell said.
The shooter and the victim never made it into the house, according to investigators.
Cook earlier said a dark-colored vehicle was reportedly seen leaving the scene, but they don’t know if there’s a connection.
“We don’t have a motive as to what occurred before the shooting,” Cook said. “We have several people here who may have been witnesses, but we’re going to wait until our investigators get here, so they can talk to them.”
