The male shooter, 23, was not seriously injured.

HPD Major Assaults and Family Violence Division Detectives S. Ragsdale and G. Black reported:

Officers responded to a shooting call at an apartment at the above address and learned one male had been shot.  Further investigation revealed the man (Torres) was actually a suspect who had come over to his mother-in-law's apartment to speak with his wife.  After Torres initially knocked on the apartment door, he kicked in the door to gain entry.  Torres then struck a man (victim) in the face.  The man pulled a gun and fired a shot at Torres, striking him in the chest.  Paramedics transported Torres to the hospital.  The shooter was detained and released pending further investigation.
