Incident at 2706 West Sam Houston Parkway South

September 14, 2005 -- Houston police are investigating the fatal shooting of two men at 2706 West Sam Houston Parkway South about 10:35 p.m. on Tuesday (Sept. 13).

The first victim has been identified as Nicholas Gilbert Munoz, 20, of 2234 Jamara Lane. The identity of the other male victim, 20, has not been released pending notification to the next of kin. Both victims suffered a gunshot wound and were pronounced dead at the scene.

HPD Homicide Division Sergeant M.K. Peters and Officer T. Cunningham reported:

According to witnesses, the victims were sitting inside of their vehicle at the location, which is a self-service gas station island. An unknown, dark pickup truck pulled up on the far side of that island and the suspect stepped out and entered the rear seat of the victims' vehicle. After a few minutes, the suspect got out of the vehicle and returned briefly to his own vehicle. The suspect again returned to and entered the rear seat of the victims' vehicle.

After several more minutes, Munoz quickly got out of his vehicle and ran towards the gas station door, where he collapsed. The suspect was then observed exiting Munoz's vehicle, returning to his truck and fleeing. The second victim was found dead inside of Munoz's vehicle. Surveillance video obtained from the business will be examined further as the investigation progresses.

The suspect is only described as a black male driving a dark colored pickup truck.

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.
