Corey Bean, 27, Bayou Body Count No. 90
UPDATE: As of April 22, 2010 charges of murder were pending against 21-year-old Kendrick Romaine Hicks. According to HPD, Hicks surrendered to police and confessed to the crime.
At 8:20 AM, while the rest of us were downing coffee, dozing over our cereal, or enduring a freeway traffic jam somewhere in this sprawling metropolis, two of our fellow Houstonians were arguing about money in the parking lot of a Hobby Airport-area apartment complex.
And that discussion would soon escalate beyond words and on to violence. Now one man is dead and another is a fugitive. The shooting happened this morning at the Broadway Square Apartments on Morley Street. Witnesses told police that the alleged perp made his getaway in a blue four-door Honda driven by a female.
The name of the victim has not been released.
Anyone with information in this case is urged to contact the HPD Homicide Division at 713-308-3600 or Crime Stoppers at 713-222-TIPS.
