A busy couple of days for the HPD homicide squad continued with the discovery of a man shot to death on the southeast side of town Monday evening.
Family members who had not heard from the man went to his apartment in the 6700 block of Fairway and found his body about 8 p.m.
His identity is being withheld pending verification by the medical examiner. (Update: HPD has identified him as Lowell "Cook" Bell, 55. Police also say "drug paraphernalia was found in the apartment and friends told investigators that a number of people frequented Bell's apartment. At this time, investigators are requesting to speak to anyone with information regarding Bell or his associates.")
"Family members and possible witnesses were questioned at the scene," HPD says. "However, no charges have been filed at this time."
Anyone with information in this case is urged to contact the HPD Homicide Division at 713-308-3600 or Crime Stoppers at 713-222-TIPS.
