Christopher James Murray, 32, Bayou Body Count No. 99

A July 4 argument turned into a July 5 killing on the south side of town, Houston police say.

Christopher James Murray, 32, was in the parking lot of his apartment building in the 8300 block of Canyon about 1:20 a.m. on July 5 when he was gunned down, police say.

"The shooting is believed to be the result of a dispute between Murray and several males with whom he got into a physical confrontation sometime during the evening of July 4," HPD says.

There are no known suspects or witnesses, however.

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