Shooting suspect composite sketch.

Police have released a composite sketch of a man suspected to be involved in the fatal shooting of a father in front of his daughter at a local entertainment complex earlier this month.

The suspect is described only as an adult Black male with a skinny build. The victim, 37-year-old Miguel Vasquez, was pronounced dead at an area hospital, according to the Houston Police Department. Vasquez’s 10-year-old daughter was uninjured, police said.

According to HPD, Vasquez and his daughter were walking to their car in the Marq-E parking lot at 7620 Katy Fwy. just before 10 p.m. April 4 when a male approached and attempted to rob Vasquez at gunpoint.

Police said the suspect then shot at Vasquez during the course of the robbery, striking him, before fleeing the scene in a vehicle of an unknown make and model.

Anyone with information on the identity of the suspect or the getaway vehicle is urged to contact HPD’s Homicide Division at 713-308-3600 or Crime Stoppers at 713-222-8477.
