Investigators release sketch of alleged carjacker

HOUSTON, Texas (KTRK) -- Harris County Sheriff's Office Homicide investigators are releasing a sketch of a suspect in the killing of a father who was shot in front of his wife and 10-year-old daughter.

Police had reported that the killer didn't know how to use a manual transmission and killed 47-year-old Pedro Aguilar during a carjacking at 818 Richcrest in north Harris County.

Aguilar was in his car on the street in front of an apartment complex when two men in their late teens to early 20's approached him on March 11 at approximately 11:00 p.m.

ORIGINAL STORY: Man killed because carjacker is mad over manual transmission

A black male was carrying a handgun and pulled Aguilar from the vehicle and shot him, police said.

The suspects weren't able to get the car into drive because it was a manual transmission, not an automatic, and shot the man in anger, police said.

Both male suspects fled on foot. Aguilar died at the scene.

The suspect with the gun is described by investigators as a black male wearing a black hoodie. The second suspect was described as a light-skinned black male or possibly a Hispanic male, wearing a long-sleeved white shirt.

Investigators say both men were possibly dropped off for the robbery from a small white vehicle.
