HOUSTON (KTRK) -- Investigators think the same suspect is behind three deadly robberies that happened within the span of a month, and they need the public's help identifying him.

On November 11, Juan Obispo Chamorro was shot and killed in the parking lot of an apartment complex in the 5900 block of Rampart. A witness in his murder says two armed men opened fire during a robbery. Chamorro tried to run away but collapsed and died.

Eighteen days later, Jose R. Moreira was fatally shot during a robbery at the same southwest Houston apartment complex.

The man suspected in all three robberies is described as a slender black man in his early to mid 20's and between 6'2" and 6'6" tall. He has long hair worn in dreadlocks.

The second suspect is described as a black male in his 30's standing approximately 5'8" tall with a slim build. He has dark skin and long straight hair .

Anyone with information about any of the murders or the suspects is asked to call Crime Stoppers at 713-222-TIPS (8477).
