Police are on the hunt for a killer after a man was found shot to death inside of a motel room. The man was found around 9:30pm at the In-Town Suites on Rolling Creek near FM 1960 in northwest Harris County. Police were responding to a call of shots being fired at the motel. Officers saw one room with its door wide open and they found the man's body inside.

"They found one white male had sustained several gunshots," said Sgt. Curtis Brown with the Harris County Sheriff's Office. "There's no suspect at this time and the motive is also unknown."

It's believed the gunman knocked on the victim's door and as soon as the man answered, shot him to death. Investigators were able to determine that there was no forced entry, but it appeared that several items were reported missing. It is believed that robbery is the possible motive.

Anyone with information is asked to contact Crime Stoppers at 713-222-TIPS or the Harris County Sheriffs Office Homicide Unit at 713-967-5810.
