Police are investigating the case of a man who was shot six times and tossed out of a car in west Houston this morning.

Just after 6am, the man was dumped out of a car at an intersection near Highway 6 and Briar Forest. The man, who was shot three times in his arm and three times in his abdomen, made his way to a gas station for help.

Passers-by assisted the man and called for help. One of those on the scene was a regular customer of the store who happened to be a doctor.

The victim, who has not been identified, was taken to Ben Taub Hospital where police say he died of multiple gunshot wounds. He was able to provide a small amount of information to police, including a name of the suspect. The victim said he met the shooter at a strip club, but it's unclear what took place after that.

No description of the suspect has been given at this time, but witnesses say the victim was thrown out of a gray Chrysler Pacifica.

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.
