January 10, 2023 - Houston police are investigating the fatal shooting of one man and the wounding of another at 3341 Winbern Street about 7:15 p.m. on Monday (Jan. 9).

The identity of the deceased victim, 34, is pending verification by the Harris County Institute of Forensic Sciences.  The other man, 45, is in stable condition at an area hospital.

Officers were dispatched to a shooting call at a convenience store at the above address and observed two males with gunshot wounds.  Paramedics transported the victims to an area hospital where one of the men was later pronounced deceased.
