A man sitting in his car at a stoplight on the far south side was shot in broad daylight Saturday, Houston police say.

The name of the male victim, 29, has not been released pending verification. Police say he was stopped at a red light at 12400 Cullen about 4 p.m. Saturday when two men "got out of a gold or tan colored car (possibly a Pontiac Grand Prix or Grand Am) and approached him."

Both pulled guns, and one fired several times. The two then got back in their car and took off.

"The suspects are described only as black males in their early to middle 20s," HPD says.

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