Houston police are asking for the public's assistance in locating a suspect wanted in the fatal shooting of a man at 5700 Thousand Oaks Circle on Sunday, May 9. Joshua Leon Marshall, 23, is charged with capital murder. A second suspect, a juvenile female, has also been referred to Harris County Juvenile Probation on a charge of capital murder.

The male victim, Reginald Laroy King II, 29, of Houston, suffered a gunshot wound to the back and was pronounced dead at the scene.

According to police, the female suspect arranged to meet King at her apartment complex. Once King arrived the two suspects reportedly approached him and attempted to rob him.

Police say King threw away his car keys and attempted to flee on foot. The two suspects chased him and then Marshall allegedly shot King in the back, killing him. Both suspects then fled on foot.

Further investigation identified the juvenile female and Marshall as suspects in this case.

Anyone with information about the whereabouts of Marshall is urged to contact the HPD Homicide Division at 713-308-3600 or Crime Stoppers at 713-22-TIPS.
