Man found dead in northeast Houston intersection

HOUSTON - A man was shot to death in northeast Houston on Friday and area residents said they're tired of violence in their neighborhood.

Houston police said the 38-year-old man's body was found at the intersection of Hondo and Comal about 4:30 a.m. His name has not been released.

Residents said the gunshots woke them up.

"Evidently, someone had to ride by and shoot him. I heard a car and I heard the gunshot," resident Curtis Dockery said. "It's scary. They could have rode by and shot through my house."

"It's sad because this has been going on for quite a while," Dockery said.

Police said they found some evidence near the body that they hope will lead them to the shooter.
