HOUSTON (KTRK) -- A $10,000 reward is now being offered in the July murder of a man who was shot in a vehicle in southeast Houston.

The killer responsible in the July 9 murder of Giovanni Rios is still unknown.

Rios was gunned down as he rode in the back seat of a Chevy Tahoe in the 12300 block of the Gulf Freeway feeder around 1:30am. He died from his injuries.

Police say video surveillance cameras captured images of two cars driving in front of the complainant's vehicle during the incident. A possible suspect appears to lean out the back passenger window of a car, and shoot in the direction of the complainant's vehicle.

Rios' family is requesting help from the community in finding the individual responsible for this murder.

If you have information in this case, call 713-222-TIPS (8477).
