Incident at 3800 Omeara Drive

April 18, 2005 -- Houston police are investigating the fatal shooting of a man at 3800 Omeara Drive about 3:30 a.m. on Sunday, April 17, 2005.

The identity of the deceased victim is pending notification to the next of kin. The victim sustained multiple gunshot wounds and was pronounced dead at the scene.

HPD Homicide Division Sergeant J.R. Swaim and Officer A.D. Brown reported:

The victim was shot in an alley at an apartment complex. Witnesses heard numerous shots about 3:30 a.m. but did not call the police. A resident of the complex leaving to go to work at sunrise, saw the victim and called the police. The motive for the shooting is possibly drug related since crack cocaine was found in the victim's pants pocket.

Anyone with information in this case is urged contact the HPD Homicide Division at 713-308-3600 or Crime Stoppers at 713-222-TIPS.
