Mizael Lazaro Arellanes, 37, was killed in a shooting in northeast Houston.

Police are investigating an early morning shooting at an apartment complex in northeast Houston.

Officers say they responded to a shooting call around 2:20 on Saturday morning at a complex off of Shady Lane and Parker Road.

The family of Mizael Lazaro Arellanes says he left his apartment to get tacos, but never came back.

Police say that Arellanes' wallet was gone, leading investigators to look into robbery as a motive.

Arellanes' father was at work when he got the call that his son had been shot. He was devastated.

"Just nice guy to everybody. Everybody liked my son. He was a good worker," said Antonio Morales.

When officers arrived, they found the 37-year-old victim lying on the sidewalk with a gunshot wound.

"The patrol officers called HFD. The patrol officers performed CPR, when HFD arrived they pronounced the male dead. We have no suspects or witnesses at this time," said investigator Kenneth Elliot with the Houston Police Department.

On Saturday morning, police were knocking on doors, hoping to get information from the apartment residents.

There was a security guard on duty, but he said he didn't hear anything.
