HOUSTON (AP) — Authorities say a security guard at a sports bar fatally shot one man and wounded another on the northern outskirts of Houston.

Harris County Sheriff Ed Gonzalez said three guards were trying to remove people from Ojos Locos Sports Cantina as the bar was closing about 2 a.m. Sunday when “some type of altercation” occurred involving several people.

Gonzalez said one guard opened fire, killing one person at the scene while the second person was hospitalized in stable condition.

No names have been released.

Gonzalez said the security guards were not off-duty law enforcement officers but worked for a private security company.
