A man was shot to death inside a Greater Inwood apartment complex last week, according to the Houston Police Department.

The identity of the victim, who was 44 years old, was pending verification by the Harris County medical examiner, according to a May 25 news release from HPD.

HPD said officers were called to Villa Nueva Apartments at 5300 W. Gulf Bank Rd. around 9:40 a.m. May 24 to find the victim’s friend, who had called 911, attempting to provide medical assistance. The victim was later pronounced dead at Memorial Hermann Greater Heights Hospital, police said.

The victim and his friend were coming to the apartment to meet with another friend who lives there, according to police. HPD said the friend told investigators he heard gunshots and then saw someone fleeing the scene, before finding the victim on the ground and calling 911.

HPD said May 25 that it did not have descriptive information about a potential suspect.

Anyone with any information about the case or potential suspects is asked to call HPD’s homicide division at 713-308-3600 or Crime Stoppers at 713-222-8477.
