HOUSTON – The Houston Police Department is asking for public help in locating a suspect in connection with the fatal shooting of a man by a gunman on a motorcycle on Christmas Eve.
Police say the shooting occurred at 1:10 p.m. Tuesday outside a home at 14802 Buxley Street.
About 40 minutes before the shooting, Derrick Fields, 43, was involved in an altercation with 49-year-old Cedric Gee Mosley at the home on Buxley St., police say.
