Sketch released of suspect in fatal shooting in southeast Houston


It happened at the Cabo San Lucas apartments on 10910 Gulf Freeway in the early morning hours of May 4. Police say a man kicked in the front door of an apartment there and demanded money from the victim, 25-year-old Evans Butler.

Police say Butler didn't comply and was shot by the suspect, who then fled in an unknown direction.

Surveillance video at the complex shows a dark-colored Dodge Charger and an unknown white four-door vehicle pull into the apartment complex parking lot. They go out of camera range, but shortly after a tall black male could be seen coming from the area of the victim's apartment, skipping towards the vehicles.

The suspect is described as a black male, 20 to 30 years old, about 5 feet 8 inches tall, with a chubby face with healing scars or acne.

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.
