Jason Windham, 40, Bayou Body Count No. 75

A man was shot to death after several men forced their way into his motel room early Monday, Houston police said.

Jason Windham, 40, was staying with his girlfriend at the America's Best Inns & Suites in the 700 block of North Sam Houston tollway, HPD says.

About two in the morning, he answered a knock on his door. "Several unknown male suspects then forced their way into the room and began to struggle with the victim," police say. "During the struggle, the suspect suffered a gunshot wound."

He was taken to a hospital, where he died.
