Friends and relatives of Luis Arturo Martinez, the 22-year-old security guard who was shot to death trying to break up a bar fight, may be one step closer to finding justice.

Composite drawings of the suspected shooter and his accomplice have just been released by HPD, and unlike many such illustrations these are detailed and almost as good as photographs.

Martinez was working security at the Pantera Sports Bar on the northwest side last month when a fight broke out at 3:30 a.m. Bar fights at that time of the morning tend to be trouble, and this one was no different. Shots were fired and Martinez was killed.

At the time HPD said the shooter left with a woman, but the composites show his companion to be a man.

HPD says the suspects are two Hispanic males. "The shooter is in his 20s, about 6 feet tall, 250 pounds with a distinctive large scar on his inner left forearm," police say. "The other suspect is in his 20s, about 5 feet 9 inches tall with a thin build."

Anyone with information on the identities of the suspects is urged to contact the HPD Homicide Division at 713-308-3600 or Crime Stoppers at 713-222-TIPS.
