Authorities don't have much to go on.Î¾ In the early morning of Thursday, September 17th, a passerby spotted a motorcyclist's body along Highway 90 at Miller Road #3.Î¾ They called in what they though was an accident.Î¾ When deputies arrived on the scene they realized the crash was no accident.
"He was shot one time."
Harris County Homicide Sergeant Greg Clopton says the 25-year-old victim was found along the feeder road and was probably shot about 3AM.
"He was on his way home from having hung out with his friends. He left mid-town about 2:45. He was within one mile of home."
And Sgt. Clopton says they don't know much more then that. He thinks it may have been a case of road rage. He says people who do something like this usually talk about it to someone.Î¾ That's where Crime Stoppers comes in.Î¾
Anyone who knows anything can call Crime Stoppers, leave your tip anonymously, and be eligible for up to a five thousand dollar reward.Î¾The number is 713-222-TIPS. That's 713-222-T-I-P-S.
Sgt. Clopton says there was a road rage shooting in area the day before.
"Which involved a motorist who was shot while driving his vehicle east bound on I-10 which was 10-miles away."
He says in that case the driver survived and, at this point, there is no reason to believe the cases are linked.
