A man found shot, killed in a car passenger seat


A man is found shot dead in a car in the third wing overnight, and Houston police are searching for the shooter.

At approximately 1 a.m., several shots were fired at a white sedan on Arbor Street near Emancipation, according to police.

When the police arrived at the scene, they found a dead man in the passenger seat.

Police say the driver walked to the corner but left before speaking to anyone.

“He was able to drive a block away on a side street. There they stopped,” said Detective Sean Overstreet. “We are not sure if [the suspects] were in another car that was on their way, or if they ran towards the car. It’s hard to say.”

HPD says friends of the victim were nearby. They are trying to help the police pull together what happened.
