HOUSTON – Police are looking for two people who may have knowledge about a fatal shooting that happened over the weekend in west Houston.

The shooting occurred at approximately 9:15 p.m. Saturday in the 2900 block of Walnut Bend Lane.

Authorities released images of two men who detectives would like to speak with about the shooting.

Investigators said the victim had been sitting in an SUV along with an individual sitting in the passenger seat. Surveillance footage showed that a Black male, possibly 6 feet tall, dressed in black and wearing what might be a black face mask, approached the driver’s side of the vehicle and fired off multiple rounds, striking the individual sitting in the driver’s seat at least twice, said Sgt. Joshua Horn with the Houston Police Department’s Homicide Division.

Investigators believe the suspect fled the scene on foot and traveled southbound on Walnut Bend.

The victim was transported to an area hospital where he was later pronounced dead.

At this point in the investigation, robbery does not appear to be the motive in the shooting, said Horn.
