The victim and Alexander got into a verbal altercation while at a bar at the above address.  Alexander drove his vehicle toward the victim and continued to argue with him.  Alexander then pointed a weapon at the victim and shot him at least once.  A security guard at the location returned fire toward Alexander's vehicle as he fled the scene.  At that time, it was not known if the suspect was struck by the gunfire.  Houston Fire Department paramedics responded to the scene and transported the victim to the hospital.  

An initial investigation determined Alexander had been struck by the gunfire and was located at an area hospital.  Further investigation and witness statements positively identified Alexander as the shooter in this incident and today (September 8) charges were filed.  Alexander remains at large and his whereabouts are unknown.
