September 30, 2013 - A man shot at 9500 Country Creek Drive about 3:40 a.m. on September 19 has died of his wounds.
The victim, Ikechukwu Uzodinma Godson, 45, of Houston, was transported to Ben Taub General Hospital in critical condition. Doctors pronounced him dead last Friday (Sept. 27).
HPD Homicide Division Sergeant M. Dillingham and Officer L. Bailey reported:
Mr. Godson was sitting in a blue or silver taxi cab parked on the side of the street next to a night club at the above location when he was shot at least twice. According to witnesses, Godson was getting out of the back seat of the cab when a person in the driver's seat of the cab shot him and then fled the scene in the cab. Godson was then taken to the hospital where he later died.
Further investigation determined Godson was the owner of the cab, which has not been recovered.
The cab is a 2007 silver or light blue Ford Fusion, with a "Godson Cab" decal on the side, which may have since been removed.
