Jack Bell Tenas, 24, Bayou Body Count No. 70

A Missouri City man was shot in south Houston Thursday night as he was talking with friends.

Jack Bell Tenas, 24, was sitting in his truck with a female friend in the 2100 block of Holly Hall about 11:30 Thursday. They were talking with a third friend when three men approached the truck.

"As the suspects attempted to pull Tenas from the truck, one of the suspects shot through the driver's door window, fatally striking Tenas," HPD says. "Several witnesses who heard the gunshots exited their apartment and saw the suspects flee on foot."

The three suspects were described as black males wearing hoodies. Only one had even a slightly more detailed description: he was "8 to 24 years of age, with a thin build," 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.
