HPD patrol officers responded to a shooting at the above address and found a male, later identified as Lockett, being treated for a gunshot wound by Houston Fire Department paramedics. Lockett was then transported to an area hospital.
The female victim informed police that she was assaulted by Lockett and he threatened to kill her. Lockett then left to retrieve a gun. At that time, the victim grabbed her own gun and, as Lockett entered the room, she fired a shot at Lockett and he was struck.
