Incident at 8500 Gulf Freeway

May 2, 2005 -- Houston police are searching for two gunmen who shot and killed a 24-year-old man at 8500 Gulf Freeway on Saturday, April 30, 2005 around 2:15 a.m.

Witnesses told HPD Homicide Sergeant S.R. Kennedy and Officer J.C. Bonaby that Alejandro German Jr., of 6702 Telephone #34, and a group of friends were leaving a pool hall when another group of men confronted them. Both groups got into a verbal argument that turned into a physical fight. An unknown Hispanic male produced a weapon and fired several times into the crowd, striking Alejandro German in the upper torso and left leg, killing him.

The suspect and another man got into a black Ford F-150 truck with tinted windows. Both suspects were seen shooting at the group as they fled the scene northbound on the Gulf Freeway service road.
