Houston police sketch artists have been hard at work putting together a drawing of someone suspected of gunning down a man outside a bar for no real reason at all.
The manhunt is now afoot.
Police say that a short Hispanic man in his late teens or early 20s got into tiff with 21-year-old Ronnie Medina-Giron a little before 4 a.m. near a bar along the 700 block West Mount Houston, just off of Interstate 45. Without warning or provocation, police say, the man pulled out a gun and starting blasting, hitting Medina-Giron in the chest and another man in the hand. The gunman then ran away.
Medina-Giron died on the spot and the other man was taken to a hospital.
Anyone with information about this case can call Crime Stoppers at 713-222-TIPS.
