Heading into work on a Monday morning is difficult enough. You really don't need to be discovering dead bodies on the way.
But that's what happened to one northwest-side woman as she left for work about 7:30 a.m. Monday, Houston police say.
The woman "noticed a red 1991 Toyota Corolla parked in the driveway of her townhome complex" in the 1800 block of Hollister, police say.
"As she drove by, she saw a male slumped over the driver's seat of the vehicle. The female exited her vehicle to help the male, found him unresponsive and then called 9-1-1," HPD says. The man, who did not live at the complex, was declared dead on the scene from a gunshot wound. He is in his early- to mid-20s but had no identification on him, police say.
