Man, 22, shot, killed in apartment

HOUSTON - A 22-year-old man was found shot to death in his north Harris County apartment.

Investigators said they found Ruston Gibson around 4 p.m. on Thursday at the Trails at Dominion Park Apartments, located at 200 Dominion Park.

Deputies said they conducted a welfare check when Gibson didn't show up to work, and did not answer his door or cellphone.

"Upon arriving, they checked the apartment and found the individual in the apartment had been killed," said Sgt. Robert Spurgeon with Harris County Sheriff's Office.

Gibson was shot numerous times. Officials said he was killed between 8 p.m. Wednesday and 4 p.m. Thursday.

A motive is not yet known.

Neighbors said the man had moved into the apartment recently. They added that crime at that particular complex is on the rise.

"I was looking at my lease to see if I could break the lease because the crime is increasing," said the woman who lives directly above the victim.

Three weeks ago, the victim's next door neighbor had his door kicked in.

"I have no idea what's going on here. It's time to go," said the neighbor.

Anyone with information is asked to call Crime Stoppers at 713-222-TIPS.
