The Detroit-born entertainer made his way to Houston in 2011 for college. After graduating from Texas Southern University, he decided to make Houston his home and grow his music career.
Suell was also a father of two young girls.
"He was the greatest man, the greatest father," said Karis Lane.
According to Houston police, Suell had just left the nightclub when he was crossing the street and approached by a man in a hoodie.
Investigators say the person pulled a gun and shot Suell dead.
"This is not something that would happen to him. I'm telling you," said Washington.
Suell's loved ones called him both gentle and sweet.
