Police said that they responded to a report of a shooting at a Walmart on East Crosstimbers and Fulton around 8:45 p.m. Monday to find a man with gunshot wounds. He was later taken to a hospital where he was pronounced dead.
Police said that the man was 49 years old, but his identification is pending.
Investigators said that the man was walking down the street when he was approached by a group of four teenage girls and two teenage boys, who began harassing the man.
The man then began swinging his cane to defend himself before one of the boys turned around and fired one shot, hitting the man in the chest.
Police said that two of the suspects fled the scene by getting on a METRORail train.
There was no motive for the shooting, but a witness is cooperating with police.
Police said that the suspects are described as two Black males ages 16 to 18, and four Black females, ages 14 to 16.
Anyone with information in this case is urged to contact the HPD Homicide Division at 713-308-3600 or Crime Stoppers at 713-222-TIPS.
