HOUSTON -

A man was shot and killed after an argument in southeast Houston.

Around 10 p.m. Thursday, Houston police responded to a shooting call at Redbud Street near Danube Street.  When they arrived at the scene, officers found 30-year-old Jessie Coleman's body by the side of the road.  Police said he had been shot twice.

According to homicide detectives, Coleman and another man were in a car when they got into a fight with another unidentified person.  Police said the third person pulled a gun and shot Coleman, the driver of the car.  He died at the scene.

The passenger in the car was not injured, but he fled the area.  On Friday, detectives worked to track him down to question him about the shooting.

Police have not established a motive for the killing, but it is believed that the driver of the car was involved in a robbery on Thursday.  Officers said it is unclear if the two events are related.
