A man who was caught urinating in a north Houston street was shot dead by a resident who took exception to the crude act. 

Both the victim and the suspect drew guns on each other Thursday night after a heated exchange between the man and a large group of residents.

The man who was relieving himself – later identified as 20-year-old Lester Fuentes-Buezo – was shot multiple times, Houston police said. 

Police didn’t say if Fuentes-Buezo fired his weapon. 

As of Saturday morning, the shooter is still on the loose. 

The fatal exchange happened around 10:25pm in the 9000 block of Bunny Run Drive, where responding officers found Fuentes-Buezo’s body in the street with multiple gunshot wounds, police said. 

He was pronounced dead at the scene.

In recent months, many Texas police departments have expressed concern that shootings will continue to become more frequent with the state’s ‘constitutional carry’ law, which was passed by the state legislature in May. 

The law, which just needs the governor’s signature, would allow anyone to carry a concealed handgun without a permit. 

Gov. Greg Abbott hasn’t officially given his signature but promised to do so while the state legislature debated the bill in April and May.
