A manhunt continues Houston police after death of a 2-year-old boy who was found inside a stolen car after a man was gunned down in a southwest Houston parking lot yesterday afternoon.
Houston police officers said the child possibly died due to being left in the heat for an unknown period of time.
Officers originally responded to reports of a shooting at around 1:46 p.m.
Investigators said a man wearing a security guard uniform was getting gas at a fuel station and was seen meeting up with another man at the pumps.
Officers said the two men got into some sort of argument or altercation and the suspect shot the man in the security guard uniform multiple times.
After shooting the man, officers said the suspect got into the victim’s black SUV and drove off.
While police were investigating the deadly shooting, around 6:30 p.m., they received a call from a woman who reported her child and husband missing.
Within 30 minutes of learning about the missing boy, police said they found the victim’s black SUV abandoned in the 5900 block of Elm Street with the child unresponsive in the back seat.
Officers tried to do CPR on the child and called the ambulance, but the child was pronounced dead at the scene.
The suspect, who is described as a Black man, slim build, wearing a white shirt, black shorts and a Raiders hat with facial hair, is still on the loose.
