Houston police have released surveillance photos of two suspects wanted in the fatal shooting of a male that occurred at 6000 Bellaire Street about 7:50 p.m. on Wednesday (November 20).
The suspects are described only as two black males in their early to mid 20s.  One was wearing a white jacket with a gray hood, blue sweatpants, white shoes and a black mask.  The other was wearing a gray hoodie, a red mask, white pants and white shoes.  Surveillance photos of the suspects are attached to this news release.
The identity of the victim is pending verification by the Harris County Institute of Forensic Sciences.
HPD Homicide Division Detectives J. Caten and D. Higgs reported:
The suspects, dressed in hooded coats and wearing masks and gloves, entered a pawn shop at the above address.  As they entered, employees took cover and the suspects ran to the back of the store.  The victim, who had a concealed handgun license (CHL), waited for the suspects to come back out form the rear of the store.  When the suspects returned, the victim and the suspects exchanged gunfire.  The victim was struck multiple times and fell to the floor.  The suspects fled the store on foot in an unknown direction.  Paramedics transported the victim to an area hospital where he was pronounced deceased.  It is unknown at this time if the suspects were struck by gunfire.
Anyone with information on the identities of the wanted suspects or in this case is urged to contact the HPD Homicide Division at 713-308-3600 or Crime Stoppers at 713-222-TIPS.
