HOUSTON – Houston police are searching for a person, or people, who took aim at two men in the parking lot of a north Houston bar.
One of the men died at the scene, the other was taken to an area hospital.
The deceased victim's brother identified him as Jose Jorge Lopez, 54. He was a father of three and worked as a carpenter, Eduardo Lopez said.
The shooting happened around 2:30 a.m. in the area of Collingsworth and Hardy streets, outside the Mi Taverna.
Jose was shot inside of a truck and died from the injuries. The other victim, Jose's coworker, was found lying on the ground near the truck with a gunshot wound to the head.
Eduardo said the two men had come to the bar to have a drink after work.
"We have no witnesses at this time. At least no eyeball witnesses. We talked to people who heard the shooting, but as far as we can tell, we have no motive or any reason why the shooting happened other than we have two people shot," said Det. S. Jimenez with Houston police.
