Man dies after being shot, then hit by car inside parking garage at The Galleria; 2 men wanted for questioning, HPD says

HOUSTON – Investigators with the Houston Police Department are hoping to question two men who they say were seen with a man minutes before he was shot, then ran over by a car and killed inside a parking garage at The Galleria.

Authorities say the incident took place just before 3 p.m. on Saturday on the third floor of the Red Garage located at 5150 Hidalgo Street.

HPD Midwest Commander Z. Becker says witnesses on the scene reported hearing gunfire moments after the victim’s fight with the other men.

Police say the victim was hit by a car as he ran away from the person who shot him. Becker says the driver who hit the victim was not involved in the initial altercation, however, stayed on the scene, attempted to render aid, and cooperated with the investigation.

Authorities say the two men in question were with the victim minutes before his death. The two were described as Black men, one wearing a white T-shirt and black pants while the second had dreadlocks, wearing a black shirt and black pants.

As of Sunday afternoon, police were still waiting for officials from the Medical Examiner’s Office to determine a cause of death.

Officials have not provided any specific information on the suspect(s), but say they are looking to speak with a group of people who were in the area at the time.

Anyone with information is asked to contact HPD’s Homicide Divison at (713) 308-3600. If you’d like to stay anonymous, contact Crime Stoppers at (713) 222-TIPS (8477).
