Father of four shot, killed, carjacked while listening to music in his car, police say

HOUSTON – A man sitting in his car in his driveway was shot multiple times during a carjacking in northeast Houston, police said.

The shooting happened around 12:20 a.m. Wednesday at the victim’s home on Boggess Road near Deanna, authorities said.

Officers said the man was inside his car listening to music when someone opened fire on him.

"He was sitting in his car playing music, just chilling out and some unknown suspects either walked up, drove up (or) rode up on a bike - we're not really sure - and shot him, what looks, like multiple times and fled the scene in his car," said Sgt. Matthew Brady with the Houston Police Department Homicide Division.

Witnesses told police they heard at least three gunshots and a car screech away.

Police said the gunman or gunmen fled the scene in the victim's vehicle and left his laying in the driveway.

The man’s mother – who also lives at the house – and son were home at the time of the incident and discovered the victim and called for help.

They identified the victim as Dante Green, 41, and said he was a father of four.

Authorities said they are not sure if one or multiple culprits were involved in the deadly carjacking.
Investigators are working to learn more details about the shooting.
