Monday, April 08, 2013

A masked gunman is on the run, accused of gunning down a man inside his home's garage in northwest Harris County.

Harris County Sheriff's Office deputies were called to a house in the 7300 block of Seton Lake near Old North Bammel Houston just before midnight. Investigators say that's where a man with a mask pulled into the driveway in a silver SUV, walked up to the victim and shot him multiple times. Bernardo Barrera Jr., 21, was pronounced dead at the scene.

The victim's family was inside the home at the time of the shooting. No one inside was injured.

"We have a couple people we're talking to that may have witnessed the shooting and we are trying to obtain info from them," said Felipe Rivera with the Harris County Sheriff's Office.

So far, there's no motive in the shooting. The investigation is ongoing and anyone with information are asked to call Houston Crime Stoppers at (713) 222-TIPS (8477) or the Harris County Sheriff's Office Homicide Division at (713) 967-5810.
