Houston man shot during pistol purchase

A south Houston man was rushed to the hospital after he was shot Wednesday while buying a pistol at his home, police said.

The man was shot about 4:45 p.m. inside his home in the 4500 block of Alvin. His roommate later told officers that three men were trying to sell him a handgun when it accidently fired, Houston police said.

The man was taken to an area hospital in critical condition. His name was not released, but police said he is 20 or 21.

The three men fled and remain at large. The pistol has not been recovered, officers said.

There is no indication of foul play, HPD homicide detectives said.

discharge of firearm in city limits is a crime I am sure
I would not leave the scene of a crime
unless I had warrants, gun was stolen, drugs involved, etc........

I've bought guns FTF, but never from 3 people. Sounds like somebody had their posse with them. I put $5 on drug deal gone bad, fabricated story.
That's sound more reasonable than anything offered so far.
