A 41-year-old Indian-American has been identified as the suspect by the US police in Texas for shooting at two people, one of them fatally.

Sayantan Ghose is being pursued in the shooting of 43- year-old Clarence Wayne Harris II and 36-year-old Amanda Harris.

The police received a call on Wednesday for a “disturbance” at a house in League City. They reached the spot to find Wayne dead and Amanda, injured, local Television Channel KHOU reported.

According to League City police, Wayne had been shot multiple times and his body was found lying in the driveway in front of the house while Amanda had suffered a gunshot wound.

Amanda was taken to a local hospital for treatment.

Police said there was a party at the house, and at some point, the victims, who were also the owners of the house, had an argument with Ghose, which led to the shooting, the report said.

Ghose had fled the scene before the police could arrive.

The police described the suspect as a white man of Pacific Island descent with a shaved head. He was last seen driving a grey 2011 Toyota Corolla with Texas license plate number - DK6 M556.
