Police are issuing a renewed plea for help in solving the murder of a Houston man, gunned down two years ago.

Marcus Keith Mehundrew, 26, was killed outside of a garage in southwest Houston back on September 11, 2011. So far, his killer remains on the run.

HPD investigators say Mehundrew was taking a break from a basketball game when he was shot several times. The crime happened in the 7900 block of West Airport.

Police say Mehundrew was sitting in a garage talking with two friends when the suspect approached on foot and asked for drugs. When Mehundrew replied he did not have any, the suspect produced a pistol and fired several times. Mehundrew ran down the driveway before collapsing.

The suspect then fled on foot into the Fondren Southwest subdivision. He was last seen running at the intersection of Secretariat and Sea Biscuit.

Sgt. Warren Meeler, with HPD Homicide, said, "He walks up to Marcus with an angry look on his face, according to the witness, and says 'Hey, do you know where I can get some marijuana at?' Then he shoots Marcus. He doesn't even pay attention to the other guy who's sitting on the couch. It's like he's almost not even there."

The suspect is described as a black male in his late 20s to early 30s, about 5 feet 9 inches tall and weighing about 150 pounds. He has a distinctive mole on his face. He was last seen wearing a gray T-shirt, green shorts and a white hat.

Mehundrew was a father who had recently moved to the Houston area at the time looking for work, so he left behind a family.

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