Houston police are searching for two, possibly three suspects in connection to a deadly shooting in the parking lot of an apartment complex near NRG Stadium.

Officers responded to reports of a shooting at the apartment complex located at 9955 Buffalo Speedway around 11:05 a.m.

Loved ones identified the victim as Arne Richardson.

“He was funny, a good guy, a good dad, and made us laugh,” said friend Bria Gable.

Officers said Richardson was found shot to death after confronting the suspects who were seen breaking into cars. He then allegedly ran after one of the suspects in an attempt to recover property taken from his girlfriend when he was shot.

“After interviewing the girlfriend of the complaint, she stated that they confronted two possibly three individuals that were breaking into vehicles or pulling on door handles. The decedent confronted one of them, and there was some type of verbal argument or physical altercation which ultimately led to him being shot by one of the suspects who fled the scene,” said HPD Sgt. Adrian Lopez.

On Friday, Houston police released surveillance images of the suspected shooter, who is described as a young Black man who was wearing a lime green hoodie, gray pants and red tennis shoes. There are also images of other men who are also wanted for questioning regarding the shooting.
