Houston News : HPD investigating shooting death of man in his late 20s


A man in his late 20s was shot to death around 11:30 p.m. Friday night on a sidewalk in south central Houston, police said.

The man was standing on the side of the road at 3700 Nagle St., near the intersection with Alabama St., when he was shot multiple times, according to Houston Police Detective M. Arrington.

Police believe the homicide was either a drive-by shooting, or that the suspect walked up to him and shot him before fleeing, Arrington said.

Some family members of the victim were on scene Friday night, and an autopsy will confirm the man’s identity Saturday.

Investigators are still reviewing surveillance video and tracking down witnesses to gather more information about the killing.

Anyone with more information is asked to call the homicide division at 713-308-3600, or leave an anonymous tip with CrimeStoppers at 713-222-TIPS.
