Samuel Moreno-Mares, 25, Bayou Body Count No. 57

A DJ was shot and killed as he came home after work early Sunday morning, police say.

Samuel Moreno-Mares, 25, parked in front of his apartment complex in the 800 block of Grow on the northwest side about 3:30 a.m. when someone attempted to rob him, police say.

"Moreno-Mares then ran inside the apartment complex where he was caught and shot," HPD says.

A "heavy-set black male with short braids" was seen running from the scene after the shooting, police say.

Keep the Houston Press Free... Since we started the Houston Press, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Houston, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Houston with no paywalls.
