The identity of the deceased male is pending notification to family members by the Harris County Institute of Forensic Sciences.

HPD Homicide Division Sergeant H. Hay and Detective B. Rothberg reported:

Officers responded to a shooting at a motel at the above address and found a male suspect who had suffered a gunshot wound while attempting to rob the occupants of a motel room.  Responding paramedics pronounced the male dead at the scene.  A witness stated he saw the suspect approach the motel room with a pistol drawn and held in front of him as he entered the room.  The witness then heard a gunshot and called police.  The occupants of the motel room fled.

It is believed there were two additional suspects waiting in a dark-colored, four-door Nissan in the parking lot outside the room.  The vehicle fled immediately after the shooting occurred.

Anyone with information in this case is urged to contact the HPD Homicide Division at 713-308-3600.
