September 28, 2010 - Houston police are investigating the fatal shooting of a man at 6363 West Airport about 12:30 a.m. on Sunday (Sept. 26). 

The victim, Yancy Daniels, 30, of Missouri City, suffered multiple gunshot wounds and was pronounced dead at the scene. 

HPD Homicide Division Sergeants C.E. Elliott and B.E. Roberts reported:

A female leaving her apartment at the above address about 9:55 a.m. on Sunday saw blood on a sidewalk and found Mr. Daniels lying on the ground underneath a bush.  Police were called to the scene at that time. 

Investigators determined Daniels was shot in the torso several hours earlier, about 12:30 a.m. 

While conducting the scene investigation, it was learned Daniels’ girlfriend was murdered at the couple’s Missouri City residence.  That case is being investigated by the Missouri City Police Department.
