Fatal shooting on the west side

Unidentified Male, 22, Bayou Body Count No. 29

A robbery in a westside apartment led to the death of a young man Friday night, police say.

The 22-year-old victim, whose identity is being withheld pending notification of his family, was visiting friends in an apartment in the 2700 block of Briargrove, near Westheimer, about 11:40 Friday night.

Two men knocked on the door and forced their way into the apartment, one with a handgun and one with a stun gun, HPD says. As one searched the apartment, the victim tried to escape and was shot.

The two men then took off. Police describe them as "two black males, both 20-25 years of age, dark-complected and with muscular builds." One was 5-6 and one was 5-8 tall.

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