A man was shot and killed as he left an apartment in southwest Houston in broad daylight.

Police are investigating the homicide that occurred on South Gessner and Braeswood.  Police say the man was shot twice in the chest while leaving the apartment.

Police are investigating but are not saying if they have a suspect or a description of the shooter.  

One witness who spoke with our television partner Local 2, says she saw the shooting and was reminded of her son's shooting death two years ago, "It's really sad, too many of our children are dying from gunshot wounds." said witness Shirley Shepard.
