According to the somewhat odd police report, the victims were waiting in the complex for one of the suspects to return home so they could return a lost phone to him. When the suspects saw the two men, they began shooting.
The two suspects "are believed to have fled to their native country of Honduras," poice say.
Anyone with information in this case or on the whereabouts of the wanted suspects is urged to contact the HPD Homicide Division at 713-308-3600 or Crime Stoppers at 713-222-TIPS.
