They were called out to the 3700 block of Varla Lane in the Sablechase Subdivision at around 2am Thursday. According to police, neighbors reported hearing two gunshots near their residence. When those neighbors went outside, police say they discovered a black male, later identified as Asher Guadalupe, lying on the sidewalk.
Guadalupe, 19, suffered a gunshot wound to the stomach, but was still alive. EMS arrived on the scene and transported Guadalupe to Memorial Hermann Hospital, where he was pronounced dead.
Neighbors, police say, saw a dark-colored 4-door sedan speed out of the neighborhood, shortly after the shooting.
Investigators say they are not aware of any motive or why he was shot. They did find a black hood and gloves next to the victim's body.
An investigation is underway.
