A man who was believed to be a robbery victim was found dead in a ditch on the northwest side Tuesday afternoon.
Houston police said the victim,
whose identity was withheld pending notification of family, "suffered a possible gunshot wound" and was pronounced dead at the scene in the 5400 block of Wheatley. (Update: HPD has identified him as Mohammed Nabil Elsayed, 32.)"The victim was found lying in a drainage ditch," police said.
"Shortly afterward, an abandoned vehicle was recovered in southwest Houston with physical evidence inside of it believed related to the male's death. Robbery is believed to be the motive in this incident."
There are no known suspects, however. 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.
