HPD Homicide Division Sergeants J.J. Brooks, L.A. Flores and Officers M.F. Waters and R. Carstens reported:

Officers responded to a shooting call and found Mr. Moses inside of his apartment. According to witnesses, Moses was last seen arguing with two male suspects. At some point during the argument, one of the suspects produced a handgun and shot Moses.

Investigators learned Moses and the suspects had several arguments the day of the shooting. Moses and the suspects were acquaintances and their apartments were in close proximity to one another. In the last argument, Thomas shot Moses several times as he ran from the suspects. Thomas and Meredith might be in Houston or New Orleans driving in a dark gray 1997 Toyota Avalon with Texas license plates S19XFH.

Anyone with information on the whereabouts of Carnell Meredith and/or Jeremy Thomas is urged to contact the HPD Homicide Division at 713-308-3600 or Crime
