Houston police are investigating a homicide after a man was found dead in his southeast Houston apartment complex. Gianna Caserta reports.


Houston police have released surveillance videos of the suspect's vehicle connected to their homicide investigation at a southeast Houston apartment complex.

Officials said a man was found dead around 1 p.m. Wednesday at the Canfield Apartments located in the 3800 block of Atttucks and Alabama.

Houston police said a female called 911 and said she heard someone in her apartment. The woman heard arguing followed by a gun shot.

The family told Local 2's Gianna Caserta that the victim is 71-year-old Billy Chatman. However, police have not confirmed the deceased person's identity.

"They called me at the house and my number was one that showed on the numbers he had," said Joe Bradley, the victim's brother-in-law. "They called me and said he had been shot, and they needed someone to come over."

Homicide detectives are investigating.

Police are looking for three men and one woman who drove off in what looked like a Nissan Armada.

Police released descriptions for the suspects on Thursday.

Three of the suspects are Hispanic males.

One is about 5 feet 4 inches tall with very short black hair. He has a Houston Texans logo tattoo on the inside of his left forearm that he may have received in the Pasadena area.  He was last seen driving a black Nissan vehicle with Houston Texans logos on the top corners of the front and back windshields. The vehicle may also have a Houston Texans logo flag attached.  

The second suspect is about 5 feet 7 inches tall with short hair and a light brown skin tone. He has noticeable scars on his right cheek and possible scars on his left cheek as well.  

A third suspect has short hair, and was possibly wearing glasses or sunglasses. He was seen driving the Nissan Armada.  

The fourth suspect is described as a possible Hispanic female with long, curly hair. She was last seen wearing rings and had bracelets on her right arm. 

Anyone with information on the suspects is asked to call the HPD Homicide Division at 713-308-3600 or Crime Stoppers at 713-222-TIPS.
