HPD officers responded to the scene of a shooting at 10440 South and were advised that Mr. Griffin and two other occupants were in a vehicle at the intersection of West Sam Houston Parkway South and Richmond when another vehicle, possibly a Lexus, approached them and began shooting. Griffin was struck several times and died at the scene.
