‘Execution Style’ Killings in Houston
HOUSTON, TEXAS--Three individuals in northwest Houston were reportedly killed execution-style, Breitbart Texas has learned. The unidentified victims, two females and one male, were shot at close range.
The murders took place in an apartment complex in the 7400 block of Hillmont near Hollister, according to a Houston Police Department (HPD) statement obtained by Breitbart Texas.
According to HPD Homicide Division Sergeant C. Hassig and Officer T. Ferguson, the three victims were found dead in the apartment around 6 pm by a neighbor who subsequently called 9-1-1. Police then arrived on the scene and concluded that each victim had been shot multiple times with various weapons, one of which was a shotgun.
There were apparently signs of forced entry around the loft-style apartment, which was known to be a location for prostitution, according to police.
"The front door of the apartment was kicked in and the inside of the apartment was in disarray," the HPD release stated.
The three suspects in the case, all of whom are thought to be adult black males, remain at-large. A spokesman with the HPD told Breitbart Texas that at this time, police have no further suspect information and have asked the public to turn over any information regarding the case they may have.
Breitbart Texas' calls to the Harris County Institute of Forensic Sciences were not immediately returned.
