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.
