He was found dead on a sidewalk on Buffalo Speedway about 5:30 a.m. behind Brentwood Baptist Church.

She said something happened between Sunday and Monday morning.
"I'm just hoping that they would come forward and just let us know what happened. Just anything. Any information will be some good information," Turner said.
The medical examiner found he had been shot twice in the head and once in the neck.
Houston police said there were no motives or suspects in the case.
