Eric Cooper, charged with murder
A murder in a northwest side record store was likely drug-related, police say.

Justin Aaron Conrad, 27, was killed in a shootout at the Urban Soundz store in the 8600 block of North Houston Rosslyn about 6:40 p.m. Thursday, HPD says.

Eric Cooper, 26, has been charged with murder in the case, and a second suspect remains at large.

HPD says Cooper and the other man entered the store and shot Conrad and another man, who was injured and is in critical condition.

The second suspect is described as "a black male in his 20s, about 5 feet 7 inches tall, 160 to 170 pounds with a dark complexion."

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