October 19, 2010 - Houston police are investigating the fatal shooting of a man at 7127 Alder Street about 9:30 p.m. on Monday (Oct. 18).

The victim, Inocencio Martinez-Solis, 36, of Houston, suffered a gunshot wound to the chest and was pronounced dead at the scene.

HPD Homicide Division Sergeant R. Torres and Senior Police Officer J. Johnston reported:

A patrol officer responded to a traffic accident and when he arrived, he heard a gunshot next door at a car wash. The officer immediately drove to the car wash and found Mr. Martinez-Solis lying on the ground, unresponsive. HFD emergency personnel arrived and pronounced Martinez-Solis dead. According to witnesses, a white 2005 to 2008 Nissan Frontier four-door pickup truck drove by the area twice and slowed down at the car wash just before two gunshots were heard.

The suspect driving the Nissan is described only as a Hispanic male, 42 to 45 years of age and a chubby build. At this time, robbery is believed to be the motive for the shooting.

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.
