Investigation into Fatal Shooting at 6643 Cullen Boulevard

July 01, 2019 - Houston police are investigating the fatal shooting of a man at 6643 Cullen Boulevard about 2:10 a.m. on Sunday (June 30).  

The identity of the victim, 64, is pending verification by the Harris County Institute of Forensic Sciences.  

HPD Homicide Division Sergeant J. Burton and Detectives N. Sharp, J. Escobar and B. Rothberg reported:  

HPD patrol officers responded to a shooting call at a gas station at the above address.  Witnesses found the victim lying in the parking lot.  HFD paramedics responded to the scene and pronounced him deceased. 

A witness who had been with the victim earlier reported hearing a gunshot while inside the store.  She then saw two male suspects inside the victim's vehicle.  Fearing for her safety, the witness fled the scene on foot, but later returned to the location to speak with investigators.  

At this time, the motive is believed to be robbery.  

The suspects are described only as two males wearing white jackets and "ghost" masks.  They fled in an unknown direction shortly after the robbery.  

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.
