Unidentified Man, Bayou Body Count No. 37

Not much is known about a man who was shot to death early Saturday morning, but it's a good bet that he didn't die thirsty.

Officers got a call about a shooting at 2054 Wirt in northwest Houston. When they arrived, they found a dead man in a parking lot.

The cops talked to witnesses who said that the victim had been inside a nearby bar when he was shot to death and then dragged out into the parking lot. The shooter is only described as being a Hispanic man.

Police say they haven't figured out a motive yet as to why someone would snuff out a man in a bar. They are still investigating.

Anyone with information about this case can call Crime Stoppers at 713-222-TIPS.
