January 26, 2017 - Houston police are asking for the public's help in identifying three suspects wanted in the shooting of a man at 15321 Vantage Parkway East about 1 a.m. on September 29.

The suspects are described as only black males wearing either hoodies or long sleeve T-shirts.  One suspect is described as being in his 30s, with light skin, a chunky build, close-cut hair and a slight beard.  A composite sketch of this suspect is attached to this news release.  

Of the other two suspects, one is described as having black hair in short braids while the other had his black hair in dreadlocks.  Both are believed to be about 18 to 25 years-old.

The victim, 27, suffered multiple gunshot wounds and was transported to an area hospital where he was treated and subsequently released.

HPD Airport (IAH) Division Officer C. Rohling reported:

The victim was working as a desk clerk at the Quality Suites Intercontinental Airport West at the above address when he observed a male get into an orange or red vehicle with another male (composite sketch suspect) already seated inside. At this time, the victim also heard glass breaking and observed a third male behind a vehicle with freshly broken glass.  The victim then called 911 and yelled to the suspects that the police were on the way.  The victim then heard gunshots and realized he had been shot.  

The suspects fled the scene in a 2003-2006 Sunburst Orange Chevrolet Cavalier that was missing a rear passenger side hub cap.  A surveillance photo of the Chevrolet is attached to this news release.

Anyone with information on the identities of the suspects is urged to contact the HPD Airport (IAH) Division at 281-230-6800 or Crime Stoppers at 713-222-TIPS.
