The victim, Emmett Wayne Crawford, 39, of Pearland, was pronounced dead at the scene.  

HPD Homicide Division Sergeant B. Harris and Senior Police Officer M. Waters II reported:  

Mr. Crawford was in his sport utility vehicle on Dreyfus near Foster and got into an argument with a balck female and a black male in a gray Honda or Hyundai.  Both vehicles then moved slowly toward St. Augustine Street.  As both vehicles stopped side-by-side at the intersection, several gunshots were fired and Crawford was struck.  He was found deceased just outside his SUV.  

A witness told police he was awakened by gunshots, looked outside and saw a black or dark blue Ford F-150 pickup truck with the headlights off reversing from the intersection on St. Augustine.  The truck then headed eastbound on Dreyfus with the headlights still off.  The witness also saw Crawford lying in front of his SUV, which was in a ditch.  

At this time, there are no known suspects.  

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.
