One person is dead after a fight ended in gunfire Thursday night in Houma, police say.

According to the Houma Police Department, the shooting happened just before 7 p.m. in the 100 block of Senator Circle. An unnamed 30-year-old man was taken to the hospital with a gunshot to his upper body where he later died.
