Darwin Roberson, 51, Bayou Body Count No. 65

Maybe walking to convenience stores isn't such a good idea -- for the second time over the weekend, a man was shot and killed while walking to one.

Darwin Roberson, 51, was on his way to a store on the northside about 1:30 a.m. Sunday when he was confronted by two men just beyond his driveway, police say.

"Roberson, who was unarmed, attempted to flee," HPD says. "The suspects, armed with assault rifles, fired several times, striking Roberson in the back."

Roberson stumbled into his yard in the 2400 block of Turner and died, police said.

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