The victim was shot around 11:45 p.m. at the 6500 block of Weston Street near Kelso Street during a possible carjacking, then was dumped out of his own vehicle.
The 37-year-old victim just closed the store for the night and was trying to get into his car when he was confronted and shot more than once by the suspect, police said.
The suspect took off with the victim’s car as some good Samaritans tried to help the victim and started rendering aid. But the victim died at the scene.
Police are searching for the suspect and the victim’s car. It’s a dark gray 2012 Toyota Camry with Texas license plate number BFM-2268 and has a bullet hole in one of the windows.
Anyone with information in this case is urged to contact the HPD Homicide Division at 713-308-3600 or speak anonymously with Crime Stoppers at 713-222-TIPS.
