Police are investigating a deadly shooting at a store in north Houston last night. Around 6:45pm, two men walked into the Urban Soundz music store on North Houston-Rosslyn at West Gulf Bank. Investigators believe the men went straight up to the owner's brother, Justin Aaron Conrad, 27, and shot him multiple times. Conrad was pronounced dead at the scene.

A second male also suffered gunshot wounds and was transported to Ben Taub General Hospital in critical condition.

Police say both suspects immediately fled the scene in a silver Dodge Charger with a blue pinstripe and Texas license plates SVV-406.
