Incident at 8000 Cedel Street

June 13, 2006 -- Houston police are investigating the fatal shooting of a man at 8000 Cedel Street about 3:40 a.m. today (June 13).

The victim has been identified as Hernan Laguna Sanchez, 25, of 7631 Harwin. He suffered gunshot wounds to the chest, neck and leg.

HPD Homicide Division Sergeant C. T. Mosqueda and Officer L. Benavidez reported:

The victim was at a nightclub in southwest Houston with friends. After leaving the club, they drove to the Ridgecrest subdivision in the northwest area of Houston. As the victim attempted to turn left onto Cedel, a dark-colored Ford Expedition pulled to the left of the victim's car and blocked him. The driver continued to taunt the victim by blocking the lane of traffic. The victim then jumped out of his car and asked those inside the Expedition what the problem was. At this time, a suspect in the front passenger seat of the Ford Expedition shot the victim three times. The Expedition then left and returned a few minutes later, with the passenger shooting at the victim and his friends several more times. The suspect's vehicle was last seen traveling eastbound on Cedel Street. There is no known motive at this time.

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.
