May 13, 2005 -- The fatal shooting of a man at 7926 North Shepherd today (Friday, May 13) about 1:30 a.m. will be referred to a Harris County grand jury.

The male victim's identity is pending identification by the Harris County Medical Examiner's office. He suffered a gunshot wound to the chest.

HPD Homicide Division Sergeant M. Scott and Officer C. Scales reported:

A male customer and an employee got into an argument in the parking lot of a cabaret. A security guard employed at the business asked the male customer to leave. The male began to yell, curse and threaten the security guard. The security guard used a hand held stun gun device on the male after the male charged at him. The male then charged the security guard again and began to struggle with him for his gun, causing the gun to discharge and strike the male in the chest.
