Man fatally shot while sitting inside vehicle in northwest Houston: HPD



HOUSTON – An investigation is underway after police said a man was found dead with gunshot wounds inside his vehicle in northwest Houston Thursday.

Officers with the Houston Police Department responded to reports of a shooting in the 5100 block of Antoine around 12:17 a.m. When they arrived at the scene, police said they found a man with a gunshot wound to the head inside of a Jeep SUV.

Investigators said the man was sitting inside of the Jeep when he was shot. He was pronounced dead at the scene.

Officers said they located surveillance footage of the shooting and saw two occupants of a white vehicle get out and began shooting at the victim. It is believed the white vehicle was following the victim and possibly targeted him, investigators said.

A few other vehicles were struck by bullets during the incident as well, but police said there didn’t appear to be any other witnesses.
