Reza Kheshtnia, 39, Bayou Body Count No. 30
A gunfight on the far west side resulted in the death of a 39-year-old man, police say.
Reza Kheshtnia was driving home from work about 5:20 a.m. Monday when another car "blocked him in" in the 2700 block of Ashford Oak Drive, police say.
"There was an exchange of gunfire and Kheshtnia was struck several times," police say. The suspects fled in Kheshtnia's car, which was found abandoned about four miles away.
At least one of the suspects was hit, and the motive appears to be robbery, HPD says.
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.
