It happened around 3:30 a.m. Sunday morning on the 4800 block of West 34th Street.
From the preliminary investigation, police said that the victim and a woman were walking down a sidewalk heading toward a hotel.
That’s when a group of men pulled up in a vehicle and opened fire. The victim suffered multiple gunshot wounds, including one to the neck area, police said.
“A Dodge sedan with four males, they all had ski masks, came out and targeted the complainant and shot him,” HPD Lt. Ignacio Izaguirre said. “She said all three men had guns. They came out and they shot him. One of the gunshot wounds turned out to be deadly.”
The suspects then fled the scene in the vehicle. The woman, who ran and hid, was not injured.
Police said the shooting may have stemmed from an argument that took place earlier in the day.
Anyone with information in this case is urged to contact the HPD Homicide Division at 713-308-3600 or speak anonymously to Crime Stoppers at 713-222-TIPS.
