HPD Homicide Division Sergeant A. Semmelrock and Officer M. Stahlin reported:

Mr. Cruz was seated in his car, working his shift as a security guard at the above address, when two suspects approached him from behind and ambushed him.  Both suspects began firing upon Cruz's car as they approached with no prior confrontation.  The suspects then robbed Cruz and fled the scene on foot.

Surveillance photos and video of the suspects, which can be viewed on the HPD YouTube channel at https://youtu.be/Lp6hUg_Vkcw., were released to public on  December 22, 2015.

Acting on a Crime Stoppers Tip, investigators identified Moreno and Vasquez as suspects in this case.  Moreno was taken into custody on December 28, 2015 without incident.  At that time, investigators were unable to locate Vasquez.

Further investigation developed information on Vasquez's whereabouts and he was ultimately located in Mexico.  He was taken into custody without incident by Mexican authorities and was extradited and transferred to the Harris County Jail on Monday (October 22).
