HOUSTON (AP) - Houston police say a good Samaritan has been fatally shot while trying to protect a woman as her boyfriend allegedly attacked her.

Police say the boyfriend, 18-year-old Hector Henriquez of Houston, was being held without bond on a murder charge after Friday’s shooting. Investigators say the slain man, whose name wasn’t immediately released, did not know the couple.

Houston police say the man who intervened was in his vehicle when he saw Henriquez beat the woman in a disturbance along a street. Investigators say Henriquez pulled a gun and shot the man, who died later at a hospital.

Henriquez ran but was caught hiding under a nearby bridge. Attorney information wasn’t immediately available for him.

Police didn’t immediately provide additional details on the woman.
