Houston police are searching for a male suspect accused of fatally shooting a man early Saturday morning in a Third Ward auto shop parking lot.

Investigators said the suspect shot a male victim at about 1:15 a.m. in the parking lot of Smart Start Ignition Interlock, located on the corner of Emancipation Avenue and Blodgett Street. The suspect fled on foot north from the scene, Houston police Detective Jason Escobar said.

“We don’t know the reason why they were fighting, we don’t know if they know each other,” Escobar said.

Three to five shots were fired at the scene, where police found the victim deceased, Escobar said. Investigators have not recovered a weapon.

The names and ages of the victim and suspect were not available Saturday. Police believe the victim is between the ages of 30 and 45, Escobar said.

Investigators are reviewing multiple surveillance cameras in the area, Escobar said.

“We won’t be able to find out until we contact the business owners and get copies of the video,” Escobar said. “Sometimes the cameras don’t work, but hopefully in this case they do.”
