An argument between two men ended with one man being shot over the weekend.

According to reports, the men dated the same woman and were rivals.

The shooting happened early Sunday morning at approximately 1:30A.M., at a home on Westway at Gaston in northeast Houston.

Authorities said a man went to his ex-girlfriend’s home, thinking she was home alone.

He knocked on her bedroom window and the woman then opened her bedroom curtain.

The former boyfriend then saw that the new boyfriend was in bed.

The ex-boyfriend then told the woman he was going to get his gun.

Fifteen minutes later, the man then barged into the home with a pistol and got into a fight with the other man.

Additional reports indicate that the new boyfriend, who also had a gun, pulled it out and shot the former boyfriend once in the chest during the fight.

The shooting victim was transported to Ben Taub General Hospital, where he was reportedly listed in serious but stable condition. Police continue to investigate the incident.
