Houston crime: Man found dead in car after ShotSpotter reports a shooting outside SE Houston convenience store

HOUSTON, Texas (KTRK) – A man was found dead inside a car in southeast Houston after gunfire detectors alerted police to the location.

The shooting happened around 1 a.m. Monday on Cullen Street in Ward Street.

A large group of people gathered in the parking lot of a convenience store, and at some point someone opened fire, Houston police said.

That’s when police said ShotSpotter technology had identified at least one gunshot and alerted authorities.

“He ran back here. It looks like the people in that vehicle were trying to get him to the hospital,” said Lt. Larry Crowson. “Unfortunately, he expired at this location.”

Investigators believe some kind of confrontation broke out between the victim and another man shortly before the shooting occurred.

Police are continuing to question witnesses and will be checking surveillance video to get a better idea of ​​exactly what happened.
