HOUSTON, TX (KTRK) — Police are searching for a man charged with the death of a janitor at a Montrose area apartment.
Cardarius Jamar Woodard, 22, is charged with murder in the shooting death of 60-year-old David Walters. Houston police released a photo of Woodard in hopes someone knows where he is.
Police said Woodard is known to have ties to Texas and Louisiana. He is considered armed and dangerous.
“I want him to go to court. I want him to think about what he did because he changed a lot of people’s lives,” said Michael Walters, the victim’s brother. “He (Walters) didn’t deserve this.”
According to police, Woodard, who also lived in the small apartment building, went to Walter’s apartment and confronted him and a colleague about his missing keys.

Police said the shooter, later identified as Woodard, pulled out a firearm and fired a warning shot. Then Walters stepped in.
“David stepped between them and said, ‘You’re not going to do this,’ and Car shot him,” explained Robert Jones, a longtime friend of the victim. “He (Walters) stood up for someone who was defenseless. He is a hero.”
Woodard ran from the scene, police said. He now has an arrest warrant.
“There’s no justice in that. He needs to go to jail,” Jones added. “He (Walters) was a good soul. He meant no harm to anyone. It’s a shame.”
Anyone with information regarding the whereabouts of Woodard or in this case is urged to contact the HPD Homicide Division at 713-308-3600 or Crime Stoppers at 713-222-TIPS.
