WACO, Texas (AP) - Police are seeking two gunmen after a fatal shooting at a Central Texas apartment complex when an apparent drug deal went wrong.

Waco police Sgt. W. Patrick Swanton on Sunday said a woman who was with the victim wasn't hurt.

Swanton says police on Saturday night responded to gunfire at some apartments and found 44-year-old Leslie David Lee of Purmela dead at the scene. Swanton says Lee and a woman allegedly went to the apartments to complete a drug deal. Two armed men then tried to steal the drugs.

Swanton says Lee also apparently had a gun and tried to draw the weapon when he was shot several times. The suspects fled.

An autopsy has been ordered.

Purmela is 50 miles west of Waco.
