Jason Jacobs, 31, Bayou Body Count No. 117

A man was shot on the southeast side of town last night and was taken to the hospital by a Good Samaritan, but later died, police say.

HPD says Jason Jacobs, 31, flagged down a motorist in the 8100 block of Lenora about 11:30 p.m. Monday and said he'd been shot. The motorist took him to Ben Taub General Hospital.

HPD says it received a call from the hospital about a shooting victim, but by the time officers responded, the victim had died in surgery.

There are no known suspects or motives.

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.
