The victim, Jason Waldrup, 22, of Houston, suffered a gunshot wound to the head and was transported to Ben Taub General Hospital where he was pronounced dead.

Mr. Waldrup was found lying in the 4600 Block of Blaffer St with a head wound, but appeared to be breathing. The person who found him called 9-1-1. Paramedics transported Waldrup to Ben Taub General Hospital.
Further investigation revealed Mr. Waldrup was last seen getting into a gray 2006 Mitsubishi Gallant with Texas license plates 948-LWM. He was accompanied by James “Anthony” Durr (b/m, DOB: 5-20-84), also known as “RBK,” who is wanted on a separate aggravated robbery charge in Harris County.
