Incident at 4811 Bellfort

November 29, 2005 -- Houston police are investigating the fatal shooting of a man at 4811 Bellfort on Saturday, November 26, 2005 about 10 p.m.

The victim is identified as Derrick D. Green, 31, of 3585 North MacGregor Way. He suffered a gunshot wound to the torso.

The suspects are described only as three to four black males who left the scene in a dark colored four-door sedan.

HPD Homicide Division Sergeant C.E. Elliott and Officer J. Sosa reported:

Mr. Green was hanging out at the gas station located at Bellfort and Cullen. The dark colored sedan was seen pulling up to the gas pumps. The persons in the sedan got out of the vehicle and went into the gas station to make minor purchases. As the occupants returned to the sedan, Green was seen approaching them and having a conversation with them. The suspect got back into the car with Green standing in the open front passenger's door. The sedan was seen speeding away with Green hanging onto the open door. The vehicle fled northbound on Cullen, and Green staggered back to the front door of the gas station where he collapsed. Green was then transported to Ben Taub General Hospital where he later died from his wounds.

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.
