Son of H-E-B shooting victim believes his father was followed

A man, who police say appeared to be in his mid-70s, was fatally shot shortly after he drove into a busy grocery store parking lot.

It happened at noon Saturday outside a large H-E-B store on Blackhawk near Beltway 8.

Houston police said store surveillance video showed the victim driving into the parking lot just after noon in a white Lexus SUV, which was followed by a gold Infiniti sedan. Two men were inside it.

When the victim parked his Lexus, a man got out of the car that followed him.

"Witnesses said there was a brief altercation, and the man was shot multiple times. Anywhere from two to four (shots)," said HPD Homicide Det. Andrew Barr.

If robbery was the intention, nothing appeared to have been taken.

Gloria Marin, who lives in the area, said she heard four gunshots.

"I went upstairs and asked my son if he heard it, and he did. I went outside and I saw the man on the pavement. He was pale, but alive," Marin recalled.

The victim was taken by ambulance to a hospital where he later died. The suspects made their getaway in the gold Infiniti, driving around the back of the store then getting on the Beltway.

It happened in the view of security cameras and witnesses on a busy shopping day, which will help police with their case.

Despite that, Barr said, "It was brazen and senseless."

Late Saturday, police identified the victim as 75-year-old That Huu Le. They also released surveillance camera images of the suspect vehicle and a description of one of the suspects.

HPD released images of a suspect and a gold sedan as part of a deadly shooting in the parking lot of an H-E-B on Blackhawk in southeast Houston on Jan. 20, 2018.

The suspect was seen riding in a gold-colored, four-door sedan.
