The Houston Police Department along with the Houston Fire Department responded to a report of a shooting in the 500 Block of Berry Rd near Appleton St in the Northline area of Houston on August 18, 2022, just after 10:30 p.m.

Upon arrival, they found one male victim that had been shot in the neck. The victim who has not yet been identified was found deceased at the scene but police said he is a black male likely in his mid-twenties.
