The Harris County Sheriff's Office has released composite sketches of two men wanted for capital murder in connection with the robbing and killing of a man on the far west side early Monday.
Alexander Segura, 28, was sitting in a vehicle in an apartment parking lot in the 9000 block of Jones Road about 3 a.m. Monday when he was approached by two men wearing hoodies who attempted to rob him at gunpoint, the HCSO says.
The suspects took off, Segura took chase and shots were fired. Segura was taken to Ben Taub Hospital, where he died.
