The male victim left the Yellowstone Hall, at the above address, intoxicated and got into a red Chevrolet Impala that did not belong to him. The owner of the Impala was made aware of the victim sitting in his vehicle and confronted the victim, while attempting to get him to get out of the vehicle. An argument between the owner of the vehicle and the victim started over who owned the vehicle. The owner of the Impala then pulled the victim from the car. The victim then threatened the owner of the Impala and pushed him. The owner of the vehicle, in self-defense, pushed the victim, who then fell and was knocked unconscious. The owner of the Impala then left the scene in the car. Witnesses then called for an ambulance for the victim, who was transported to Ben Taub General Hospital where he later died.
The investigation is pending autopsy results by the Harris County Institute of Forensic Science.
