Victim dies after being found with multiple gunshot wounds inside crashed vehicle, HPD says

HOUSTON, Texas – A man found inside a crashed vehicle with multiple gunshot wounds died Friday, investigators with the Houston Police Department said.

HPD Lt. Larry Crowson said officers were dispatched to the area of Greenspoint Drive near Sam Houston Tollway around 12:30 p.m. in reference to the shooting.

He said the incident started with two vehicles that were traveling southbound on Greenspoint.

“There was some kind of gunfire between the vehicles,” said Crowson. “We’re not sure if it was both vehicles or one vehicle firing gunshots.”

After the shooting, Crowson said the white vehicle, with the shooting victim inside, kept going and crashed into a gray vehicle. The gray vehicle was then knocked into a black vehicle in a chain reaction crash.

The shooting victim was pronounced dead at the hospital, investigators said.

Police believe the suspect vehicle is a white four-door sedan but have not released any additional details.
