HOUSTON – The Harris County Sheriff’s Department is asking for the public’s help to find Marco Antonio Cabrera Obregon.
Authorities say he’s the man they’ve been trying to identify. Witnesses identified as the man who shot and injured two men at a bar in west Harris County, HCSO said in a news release on Friday.
On Saturday, deputies responded to reports of a shooting at the Lazy Frog Bar located at 4331 N State Highway 6.
Witnesses told deputies that Obregon and 34-year-old man were involved in a fight and Obregon was escorted out of the bar around 2:40 a.m.
Deputies said the man returned to the bar shortly after at 2;46 a.m. with a pistol in his hand and aimed it the victim. The man then pulled out a gun of his own and shot towards Obregon, but missed him.
Deputies said Obregon returned fire, shooting the victim and a 36-year-old bar employee. Both victims were transported to the hospital in critical condition.
Obregon fled the scene in his vehicle, which is believed to be a Nissan Juke, 2015-2020 model, possibly mustard yellow or a goldish color, according to deputies.
Obregon is described as a Hispanic man, 39 years old, 5 feet, 5 inches to 5 feet tall, with a military-style haircut, stocky build, with several tattoos on his arm, neck and chest area.
Both victims are still recovering, authorities say.
