Authorities are searching for a man accused of fatally shooting a teenager outside a home in the Heights area last weekend, according to the Houston Police Department.

HPD said Raymond Young, 44, has been charged with murder in connection to the shooting and was at large as of Monday, according to the department.

HPD did not release the identity of the victim, a 17-year-old boy.

Police said officers responded to a shooting call in the 1300 block of East 36th Street just before 11 p.m. last Saturday, May 22, when investigators were told the shooting happened outside a home at 1329 E. 35th St. While officers were on the scene, someone called to report a body found in the 3900 block of Watonga Boulevard, according to HPD, which determined the victim there had suffered multiple gunshot wounds during the incident on 35th Street.

Further investigation led to the murder charges against Young, who was not at the scene on 36th Street when police arrived, according to HPD.

Anyone with information on Young’s whereabouts or about the shooting is urged to contact HPD’s Homicide division at 713-308-3600 or Crime Stoppers at 713-222-8477.
