The victim was shot inside one of three houses
located at 716 Fenell. Investigators determined that the house
located at the rear of the lot was being used to manufacture and
sell narcotics and that the shooting was likely the result of
a home invasion. According to witnesses, three Hispanic male suspects
entered the residence and demanded money. A struggle between the
victim and the suspects ensued and the victim was shot in the
abdomen. The victim sought help at a neighbor's residence and
was transported to Ben Taub General Hospital where he was pronounced
dead. The suspects jumped into a vehicle and fled.
The suspects are only described as three Hispanic
males driving a small compact 4-door vehicle.
