Motorcyclist shot, killed by other bikers in NW Houston, police say

HOUSTON – Police are investigating the shooting death of a motorcyclist, who died after he was approached and shot at by three other bikers in northwest Houston.

Houston police said the call came in just before 7 p.m. They say the victim was riding on the feeder road at Highway 290 and Bingle Road when he was approached by three other men on motorcycles. They say an altercation occurred and at least one, possibly more, shots were fired at the victim.

“As I sunk my teeth in the burger I heard ‘boom,’ boom.’ boom,’” said Andrew Sosa, who was eating at a nearby restaurant at the time of the shooting. “I looked up at my brother I was like, ‘What the (expletive)?’ I was like, ‘Dude that wasn’t no muffler.’”

The victim was wounded at least once and drove around the corner where he died on a side road, according to homicide investigators.

KPRC 2 spotted one bullet mark on the window of the business. There were also several other bullet holes in the brick of the exterior.

“There’s some indications it might be motorcycle gang related,” said HPD Lt. Larry Crowson. “A few minutes after the shooting a group of about 20 motorcyclists passed the shooting scene. We’re not sure if that’s connected at this point.”

There were several witnesses, including one who tried to give medical assistance to the victim before he passed away.
