Police are trying to identify a man who was shot and killed in a vehicle Monday morning.

Police say a woman on her way to work Monday morning noticed a man slumped over a steering wheel in a red Toyota Corolla parked in the driveway of her townhome complex in the1800 block of Hollister near Longpoint. As she drove by, she saw a male slumped over the driver's seat of the vehicle. The female exited her vehicle to help the male, found him unresponsive and then called 9-1-1.

HFD paramedics responded to the scene and determined the male was deceased from a gunshot wound. Tenants of the complex reported hearing a single gunshot between 4am and 5am.

The victim was not a resident of the complex.

The man, in his early to mid twenties, had no identification. His identity is pending verification by the Harris County Institute of Forensic Sciences.

Anyone with information in this case is urged to contact the HPD Homicide Division at 713-308-3600 or Crime Stoppers at 713-222-TIPS.
