A 62-year-old man was found shot to death in his place of business in southeast Houston early Monday afternoon, police say.
The family of Lee Tisdel went to check the business in the 9100 block of Winkler after being unable to contact him and found his body, the victim of multiple gunshot wounds.
Tisdel's 13-year-old Nissan pickup was stolen from the scene but later recovered in southwest Houston.
HPD investigators say they believe the case is one of a straight-up robbery. Information on the type of business Tisdel owned was not available.
Update: An arrest has been made. "Don Francis Jackson (b/m, DOB: 5-2-51) is charged with capital murder in the 209th State District Court," HPD says.
