Man lured outside by tools shot dead outside of his north Houston apartment

A man was killed in the parking lot of his apartment complex after a group of men approached him and offered to sell him tools early Sunday, according to the Houston Police Department.

Around 12:50 a.m., the man drove into the parking lot of the Mira Vista complex near Meadowfern Drive and Northborough Drive, and was approached by the group of men, said Houston Police Detective Jason Escobar

After the men reportedly offered to sell the victim some tool, he went inside his apartment and told his wife he was going back out to look at them, Escobar said.

A few minutes later, his wife told police she heard gunshots.

She ran outside and found her husband lying on the ground with gunshot wounds. He died at the scene, Escobar said.

The suspects fled the scene, getting away. The motive for the killing is not yet determined, but robbery is suspected, said Escobar.

A description of the suspects was not available and the name of the victim has not been made public.
