Police: Bar Owner Kills Man In Self-Defense

A southeast Houston bar owner shot and killed a man, police said, in self-defense, KPRC Local 2 reported Monday.

Officials said the shooting happened at Henry’s Bar on North 80th at Avenue B at about 11 p.m. Sunday.

Police said a man walked into a bar and flashed a gun. When the owner asked him to leave, the man went outside.

“Outside the bar, there was another confrontation. He pointed the gun and the bar owner shot him and it appears to be self-defense at this time,” said Sgt. E. Lorenzana with the Houston Police Department.

The man was shot in the head and died in the parking lot. His name was not released.

No charges have been filed against the owner.
