HOUSTON – Houston police are searching for at least three suspects after a man was killed during a possible robbery at a southwest Houston apartment complex in the early hours of Saturday morning.
At about 12:30 a.m., officers responded to the 12600 block of Brookglade Circle for a possible shooting. They found a man with a single gunshot wound who was pronounced dead at the scene.
