Man shot to death in Fantasy Cabaret parking lot in north Houston, police say

HOUSTON – A man was found shot to death Tuesday after reports of a shooting in the parking lot of Fantasy Plaza Cabaret in north Houston on March 14.

Houston police officers were called to the 8500 block of North Freeway around 2:30 a.m.

Witnesses told Houston Police Department investigators there was an altercation in the back parking lot of the club.

The suspected shooter got into a blue GMC pickup truck and fired at least one shot, hitting the victim in the chest, and then drove away, investigators said.

Police are hoping to get surveillance video of the truck and possibly of the suspected shooter, according to a release from HPD.

Police said they believe the person they are looking for may be a Hispanic male. They are also searching for a blue truck with a license plate of GXN2086.

The victim, a man in his 20s or early 30s, drove his car to the 600 block of Dewalt Street, stopped in the middle of the road and died inside the vehicle, police said.

Police said a friend was inside the vehicle at the time of the victim's death.

Police are not sure if the victim and shooter were inside the club.

No arrests have been made.

Anyone with information about the shooting is asked to call HPD Homicide Division at 713-308-3600 or Crime Stoppers at 713-22-TIPS.
