HPD Releases Surveillance Footage of a Shooting by a Guy Trying to Look Like a Ninja

On December 8 at around 9:20 p.m., three suspects were allegedly involved in the shooting of Eduardo Magana, 18, of Sugar Land in a the parking lot of a convenience store at 7433 Bissonnet. Police have released a surveillance video of the shooting, which includes two of the suspects. The shooter, seen in the photo above, had his shirt pulled over his face in what I believe is an attempt to be a ninja. Yes, ninjas don't use guns and he may have just been trying to cover his face with his shirt, but you never can tell. Of course, if he were a real ninja, surveillance couldn't have captured his image, so, yeah, probably not a ninja.

Fortunately, Magana, who was shot in the head, is in stable condition after being flown by Life Flight to Memorial Hermann Hospital.

Police are seeing help identifying the three ninjas suspects. The shooter is described as a Hispanic male wearing a white T-shirtninja mask and blue jeans. There is another suspect visible early in the video. A third suspect, not in the video, is described as a Hispanic male in a red shirt.

Anyone with information on the identity of the suspects or the wanted vehicle is urged to contact the HPD Homicide Division at 713-308-3600 or Crime Stoppers at 713-222-TIPS.
