Mr. Alaniz and a female witness were approached by two black male suspects while they were parked near the Subway at the above address.  One male suspect forced his way into the vehicle and pointed a gun at the female, demanding money and anything of value.  Alaniz and the suspect then shot each other multiple times as the female exited the vehicle.  The wounded suspect attempted to flee on foot, but collapsed nearby.  The second suspect fled in a nearby grey Dodge Charger eastbound on Aldine Bender.
