A Humble man has been charged in the March 30 shooting death of a man after a birthday party in north Harris County, Harris County prosecutors said.
At about 11:30 p.m., Harris County deputies responded to a home in the 2300 block of Chamberlain Street where shots had been fired, but when they arrived everyone had already left the scene and no one answered at the home, Harris County sheriff's investigators said.
Deputies were later called to St. Anthony's Hospital, just a mile away on Little York Road, to speak with shooting victim Ramiro Baez, 25. According to the release, Baez was shot outside the Chamberlain home and driven to the hospital by acquaintances.
Witnesses told detectives that a fight broke out at the party in the 2300 block of Braecrest Street, and continued at the Chamberlain Street residence.
Baez was transferred to Ben Taub Hospital, where he died on March 31, investigators said.
Witnesses identified Martinez in a photo lineup, according to an arrest warrant filed in the case.
