Gunshots in the dead of night. A body slumps to the ground. Somebody must have seen something. Right?

That's what the cops are hoping, as they opened up another murder investigation today.

Police say they got a call a little after midnight about gunshots coming from the Luxor Park/Rancho Verde Apartments at 6000 Sunforest in northwest Houston. When officers arrived, they found the body of 41-year-old Eddie Gordon inside an apartment. Police say he had been shot several times in the torso.

Investigators say they have no suspects and haven't found any witnesses, yet.

Update: Wilmer Ruiz Amador, 26, has been arrested and charged with Gordon's murder. Police, along with deputies from the Montgomery County Sheriff's Office, caught Amador on Saturday in Conroe.

Keep the Houston Press Free... Since we started the Houston Press, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Houston, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism.
