HPD patrol officers responded to a shooting call at the above address and found the victim unresponsive in his apartment.  Houston Fire Department paramedics responded to the scene and pronounced the man, later identified as Mr. Johnson, deceased from a gunshot wound.  

According to witnesses, Johnson was standing outside on his balcony when two male suspects walked by and shot him.
