A man was found shot to death in his car at a southwest-side apartment complex Monday night, police say.
Fredrick James Black Jr., 26, was found dead at the Royal Pine Apartments in the 8700 block of Gustine Lane about 10:10 p.m.
Police were called to the location on a "shooting in progress" call. They "were told by a male that his friend had been shot," HPD says. "The male pointed to a gray car and officers approached it and found Mr. Black deceased in the driver's seat. He had been shot multiple times."
There is no known motive or suspects at this time, HPD says.
Anyone with information in this case is urged to contact the HPD Homicide Division at 713-308-3600 or Crime Stoppers at 713-222-TIPS.
