This shooting is abnormal and premeditated. Bike riders generally don't go around shooting people. My husband thinks it was a hit man. There are plenty of laws on the books to take care of this person once he is found.

So sad that someone who spent their career helping and saving others is gunned down. I too think it sounds suspicious and not random. Hope they find him soon and Justice prevails.

No hit man. Just another animal wanting to kill for kicks. The city is full of them.

No law enacted will ever stop someone from shooting someone else. Or taking a knife to them, or an axe, or running over them with a car. If Person A wants to kill Person B, they will find a way.

No, it's not full of animals wanting to kill for kicks. There are very few that do that. Houston is far safer than it was 20+ years ago when it was the murder capital of the US.

20 years ago the crime was largely confined to certain areas. Today is much more random an out town and more violent.

If these photos are the best they have, I think we've positively identified the killer as a bike-riding human being. It's good to get a handle on the species.

Don't they have traffic cams in that area? They seems to be on every intersection nowadays.

Houston's not too bad compared to other cities, but... as we can see it has its difficult moments
