HOUSTON, Texas (KTRK) -- Houston police are searching for a suspect vehicle caught on surveillance video at the scene of a deadly shooting earlier this week in north Houston.

HPD officers responded to a deadly shooting around 10:20 p.m. Sunday at a taco truck at 7525 Irvington Boulevard near Caperton Street.

According to witnesses, 23-year-old Mark Aguilar placed his order at the taco truck and walked back to his vehicle and sat in the driver's seat with the door open, waiting for his food.

That's when a Hispanic man exited a gray or silver, older model Chevrolet Tahoe and approached Aguilar, HPD said.

Aguilar was pronounced dead at the scene.

HPD released surveillance photos of the Tahoe and the suspect, with hopes that the public can help them find the gunman.
