HARRIS COUNTY, Texas — The vehicle connected to the shooting death of a Channelview construction site supervisor has been recovered, the Harris County Sheriff’s Office confirmed Wednesday night. Investigators are searching for two unidentified men af the victim was killed while inspecting a home construction in the Puebilto Verde neighborhood.

Deputies responded to a shooting in progress call Wednesday afternoon in the 15400 block of Bonita Grulla Way where they found the victim suffering from a gunshot wound. The responding officers and medical personal tried administrating CPR to revive the victim but to no avail, Sheriff Ed Gonzalez said.

Investigators said a confrontation erupted after the suspects approached the victim and another construction worker at the site. At one point, a suspect pulled out a gun and fired at the victim. The suspects left the site before officers could arrived.
