HUMBLE, Texas — A Texas man was fatally shot when a “heated” game of dominoes got out of hand early Saturday, authorities said.
The shooting occurred at a Humble community center about 2:30 a.m., Houston Police Department spokesperson Lt. R. Willkens told the Houston Chronicle.
Officers responding to the scene found the man dead at the scene, the newspaper reported.
According to witnesses, a group of people was playing dominoes and the game “got heated,” KHOU reported. One person at the dominoes table then pulled out a gun and fatally shot the man, the television station reported.
While the alleged gunman fled the scene, police believe they will be able to find him since the other players knew him.
No arrests have been made, KRIV reported.
“We’re confident we’ll find the guy,” Willkens told reporters.
