HOUSTON, Texas (KTRK) -- A man was found dead in a car on the side of the North Freeway and now police are asking for information that can help them with their investigation.

Houston police were called Wednesday night at about 6:30 p.m. to I-45 north near Main Street. People driving by noticed a car on the side of the road with its hazard lights on. When the concerned drivers stopped, they found a man inside the car slumped over and covered in blood.

Police said the victim had been shot at least once. It's unclear what led up to the shooting.

The location of the crime scene caused traffic backups and the northbound lanes of I-45 at I-10 had to be closed while investigators worked the area around the victim's car.

Police have no suspects and no witnesses, but are urging anyone with information to call HPD Homicide Division or Crime Stoppers.

EDITOR'S NOTE: Initially, police described the victim as a Black man between 20 to 30 years old. He is actually Hispanic.
