Houston police are searching for a suspect wanted in connection with the fatal shooting of a man outside a motel on North Shepherd Drive last weekend.

The Houston Police Department said 32-year-old Jamarcus Toliver has been charged with murder in the shooting of 38-year-old Joseph Lewis. Toliver was not in police custody as of Monday afternoon, according to HPD.

According to HPD, Lewis and Toliver were in a car together when they got into a confrontation in the parking lot of the Tropical Motel at 4831 N. Shepherd Dr. Police say Toliver allegedly fired multiple shots toward Lewis, hitting him as he sat in the passenger seat.

HPD said Toliver then allegedly pushed Lewis out of the car and drove away, running over him as he fled the scene. Lewis was pronounced dead at the scene, police said.

Anyone with information on Toliver’s potential whereabouts is encouraged to contact HPD’s Homicide division at 713-308-3600 or Crime Stoppers at 713-222-8477.
