A Houston man was gunned down after he responded to a knock at the door. Months after the murder near Midtown, his killer remains on the loose.

This crime happened at a home on Cleburne, near Dowling, not far from midtown, at about 7:30 in the evening on Saturday, February 25. The victim, 22-year old Jeremy Perry, answered the door and was shot multiple times.

Houston police investigators do not have a motive or any suspects at this time. They are in need of information. Perry's family says Jeremy was an architectural engineering student at HCC, and leaves behind a three-year-old daughter.

Jeremy's mother Sandra Perry said, "We really feel like Jeremy's story is a special one because he really didn't deserve what basically happened to him. It is such a travesty. If anyone knows anything, if they basically saw anything, it would be neat for them to just call Crime Stoppers."

Jeremy was an organ donor, donating four life-saving organs, which has helped the family deal with the loss, but of course, they want to see the case solved.

Anyone with information about the identity of the suspect is asked to contact Crime Stoppers of Houston at 713-222-TIPS (8477). Crime Stoppers will pay up to $5,000 for any information that leads to the filing of felony charges or arrest of the suspect in this case. Tips can also be sent by text message. Text TIP610 plus your tip to CRIMES (274637). All tipsters remain anonymous.
