HOUSTON – An investigation is underway after police said a man was found dead with gunshot wounds inside his vehicle in northwest Houston Thursday.
Family members identified the man as 29-year-old Brayan Garcia.
“He is part of this family, it hurts,” said Garcia’s mother-in-law in Spanish.
Officers with the Houston Police Department responded to reports of a shooting in a shopping strip located in the 5100 block of Antoine Drive around 12:17 a.m.
When they arrived at the scene, police said they found a Garcia with a gunshot wound to his head and arm.
Surveillance video shows Garcia’s Jeep pulling out of a shopping strip when he was shot. He was pronounced dead at the scene.
Officers said the surveillance footage shows two occupants of a white vehicle get out and began shooting at the victim.
It is believed the white vehicle was following the victim and possibly targeted him, investigators said.
A few other vehicles were struck by bullets during the incident as well, but police said there didn’t appear to be any other witnesses.
Garcia leaves behind a wife and a 6-year-old son.
