HPD Homicide Division Sergeants J. Rubio and J.T. Parker and Senior Police Officers B. D. Evans and C.L. Scales and Officer D. K. Gunter reported:

Mr. Shelton and the second victim were standing outside of apartment #267 at 10700 Fuqua when Foster and Douglas approached them. At some point, the victims and the suspects got into an argument and several shots were fired. Foster and Douglas then fled in a late model Dodge Magnum with a custom two-tone, black over silver paint job.

An extensive follow up investigation developed Foster and Douglas as suspects in this case, with Douglas believed to be responsible for the shooting. Fredreck Douglas is about 5 feet 10 inches tall and weighs about 170 pounds. His hair is possibly in dreadlocks. He is believed to be in the Houston area after traveling to Florida to evade detention after the robbery and murder.
