HOUSTON, Texas (KTRK) -- A drive-by shooting on Houston's southwest side overnight left a man dead and police with very little information.

The shooting happened in the 9700 block of Braeburn Glen Drive around 9:40 p.m. Monday.

Homicide detectives were working to figure out who shot the man and why.

HPD said they got a 911 call about the drive-by, and when officers got to the area, they found the 33-year-old victim on the side of the road in critical condition.

He was taken to Ben Taub Hospital, where he later died from his injuries.

Police said the suspect fired several shots at the victim before driving away.

"From my understanding, the victim suffered at least five gunshot wounds, mostly to the upper body, a few to the legs," Lt. J.P Horelica said.

Witnesses told police the gunman was in a white, newer-model Jeep Renegade that sped away after the shooting. That's the only description investigators had.

Now, detectives are working to figure out who the gunman is.

Anyone with information in this case is urged to contact the HPD Homicide Division at 713-308-3600 or speak anonymously to Crime Stoppers at 713-222-TIPS.
