October 5, 2020 - Houston police are investigating the fatal shooting of a male transported to a hospital at 7600 Beechnut Street about 12:55 p.m. on Saturday (October 3).

The identity of the victim is pending verification by the Harris County Institute of Forensic Sciences.

HPD Homicide Division Sergeant C. Duncan and Detective K. Heaverlo reported:

HPD responded to a report of a shooting victim at Memorial Hermann Southwest Hospital at the above address.  Officers initially met with the victim's friend, who was too distraught to provide any information.  The victim's sister then told officers the friend had stated they were at an unknown apartment complex and, while he was in an upstairs apartment, he heard the victim screaming.  When the friend came outside, he found the victim had been shot.  The friend drove the victim to the hospital and then left, changing his clothes before returning.

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.
