HOUSTON (AP) - Police say a 33-year-old man has been killed and a second was injured when a shooting erupted during an argument at a birthday party in Houston.
    
The Harris County Sheriff's Office said Sunday 37-year-old Luis Antonio Lopez Guzman is a suspect in the shooting death of Santos Alberto Vasquez. The argument turned violent around 2:30 a.m. Sunday.
