Man found shot several times, killed inside car in southeast Houston

HOUSTON – A man was found dead Wednesday inside a car in southeast Houston, according to police.

The man's body was found with multiple gunshot wounds just before 6 p.m. in the 12200 block of Beamer Road outside a townhome complex, investigators said.

The man was not a resident of the complex where he was found, according to police.

A resident at the complex said the vehicle in which the man was found was making noise because the gas pedal was being pressed.

The resident said it looked like someone shot the man through the car's window.

Police found shell casings around the vehicle and are still searching for the person responsible.

Anyone with information about the shooting is asked to call the Houston Police Department Homicide Division at 713-308-3600 or Crime Stoppers at 713-222-TIPS.
