Houston police said residents reported hearing gunshots in the area and found Justin Hardaway, 31, of Houston, lying on a sidewalk between two apartment buildings.

Police said after Hardaway was initially shot, he tried to run away and he collapsed a few feet away. The gunman shot him six to eight more times, officials said. 

He was taken to Houston Northwest Medical Center, where he was pronounced dead.

He didn't live at the apartment complex where he was shot, and investigators are still working to find out why he was there. They said he lived not too far from there, though. 

Hardaway's family members said he was well-loved in the community. Family said he leaves behind two kids; an 8-year-old girl and 6-year-old boy.

Police said Hardaway had cash on him when he died, so investigators have canceled out robbery as a motive.

It is unknown if the shooter and Hardaway knew each other.

Police said surveillance video shows the gunman being dropped off by the driver of a dark-colored SUV. They described the vehicle as a 2000-2006 Chevrolet Tahoe.

Investigators are having a hard time with witnesses coming forward due to fear of retaliation.

Anyone with information about the case was asked to call Crime Stoppers at 713-222-8477.
