Jimmy Earl Wooten, 36, Bayou Body Count No. 125
A man standing outside his Fifth Ward home was shot to death Monday night, Houston police say.
Jimmy Earl Wooten, 36, was standing in the driveway of his home in the 3200 block of Lee about 11 p.m. last night when he was approached by two men, HPD says.
"Both suspects then made unknown demands and, at some point, one of the suspects fired a shot and struck Wooten," police say. "As the shooter fled the area, he fired several more shots. At this time, it has not been determined if the gunfire was directed at Wooten or any possible witnesses in the area."
Wooten was taken to Ben Taub General Hospital, where he died.
