HPD Homicide Division Sergeant B. Harris and Senior Police Officer M. Waters II reported:

Mr. Hamza met a male known only as "Dookie" at the above address to purchase an unknown type of narcotics. As Hamza tried to make his purchase, a second unknown male suspect pulled out a pistol and told Hamza to get on the ground. Hamza then tried to flee, but "Dookie" grabbed him. Hamza broke free and, as he again attempted to flee, he was fatally shot.

Investigators believe Hamza and many of his friends know "Dookie" and are asking anyone with information to come forward by contacting the HPD Homicide Division at 713-308-3600 or Crime Stoppers at 713-222-TIPS.
