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.
