Houston police released today a composite sketch of the apparent shooter in a double murder at a Phillips 66 gas station last week. 

One of the victims, Mohammad Aziz Zubair, 55, called 911 before he was shot, providing police with a brief description of the suspect, police say. Shahzad Anwer Quraishi, 57, was also killed during the robbery.

Investigators describe the shooter, who had been "hanging out near the store," as a 19- to 22-year-old black man, about five-foot, seven-inches tall and stocky, weighing about 130 pounds. He was wearing a black shirt and black shorts or pants.

A 38-year-old man was killed Thursday near the laundry room at the Memorial Apartments -- 600 Nottingham Oaks Trail -- according to Houston police.

The victim who hasn't been identified was arguing with three men at the apartment complex when witnesses heard gunshots and saw the three men run away. Police found the victim on the ground with multiple gunshot wounds, and he was pronounced dead at the scene.

Police don't have any suspects in the killing and continue to investigate. Anyone with information is asked to call the HPD Homicide Division at 713-308-3600, or Crime Stoppers at 713-222-TIPS.
