Eddie Gordon, 41, Bayou Body Count No. 63

Gunshots in the dead of night. A body slumps to the ground. Somebody must have seen something. Right?

That's what the cops are hoping, as they opened up another murder investigation today.

Police say they got a call a little after midnight about gunshots coming from the Luxor Park/Rancho Verde Apartments at 6000 Sunforest in northwest Houston. When officers arrived, they found the body of 41-year-old Eddie Gordon inside an apartment. Police say he had been shot several times in the torso.

Investigators say they have no suspects and haven't found any witnesses, yet.

Update: Wilmer Ruiz Amador, 26, has been arrested and charged with Gordon's murder. Police, along with deputies from the Montgomery County Sheriff's Office, caught Amador on Saturday in Conroe.
