July 13, 2005 -- Houston police homicide investigators have released a composite sketch of one of two suspects wanted in the fatal shooting of a man at 5826 Conley about 11:20 a.m. today (July 13).

The victim, Ronald Samuel Ray Steward, 48, of 3700 Burkett suffered a gunshot wound to the head and was pronounced dead at the scene.

The suspects were described as two black males. One was 5 feet 8 inches to 5 feet 10 inches tall with a stocky build. The other was about 5 feet 7 inches tall and weighed between 120 and 135 pounds. A composite sketch of the stocky suspect is posted in the lobby of HPD Headquarters at 1200 Travis.

HPD Homicide Division Sergeants B. Harris and T.C. Bloyd reported:

The victim had his cell phone stolen from him several days ago. Since then, he managed to track down the person who had the phone and agreed to pay that person a $125 reward for its return. The cell phone was returned to the victim this morning, but he was unable to pay the reward. A scuffle broke out and the victim was shot.

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