While this isn’t the first shooting involving an ex-spouse in the city, a man was fatally shot by his ex’s new boyfriend in a restaurant parking lot on Sunday.
According to Fox 26 Houston, the woman’s new boyfriend reportedly shot the man at a Denny’s in southeast Houston.
Police said the shooting occurred at around 1:30 a.m. when the man and the woman, who presumably were exes, met at the chain restaurant following an argument.
While the nature of the argument was unclear, the restaurant’s surveillance footage captured the ex-boyfriend yelling. The new boyfriend showed up at some point as the back-and-forth arguing continued. The police report stated that the new boyfriend shot the man one time and killed him.
The unidentified shooter was arrested following the shooting.
