Steven Sadler, 25, Bayou Body Count No. 91

Three men were talking on a porch early Saturday morning when one took out a pistol and started firing, police say.

Wesley Clark, 26, has been charged with murder for killing Steven Sadler, 25, on the northwest side of town about 6 a.m. Saturday.

Police say Clark, Sadler and a third man were talking on the porch of Sadler's apartment in the 5800 block of Sunflower when, the third man said, Clark pulled out a gun for unknown reasons.

"According to the witness, Clark fired several times at him before turning the gun on Sadler and shooting him several times," HPD says. Sadler was taken to Memorial Hermann Hospital where he was pronounced dead.

Clark turned himself in to authorities, HPD says.
