TWO US men were shot and killed today in Houston, apparently in a dispute over a lost mobile phone.
Police responded to reports of a shooting at an apartment complex at about 2am local time, KHOU-TV said. When officers arrived on the scene, they found one dead body at the front of the complex and another in the rear.
Witnesses told police that the two victims had picked up a dropped mobile phone in a parking lot after leaving a convenience store. The owner of the phone apparently rang the device and told one of the victims to meet him at the apartment complex.
The suspects arrived at the complex and fired on the two victims. One of the victims, who was handicapped, was immediately shot and killed. The other victim attempted to flee the scene on foot with a witness, but was caught by the suspects and also fatally shot.
