Houston police have released surveillance video and photos of a suspect vehicle wanted in connection to the fatal shooting of a man at 802 Lehman about 10:50 a.m. on October 12.

The victim, Eugene Duke, 65, was pronounced dead at the scene.

It is believed the suspect fled in a small, four-door, white or gray vehicle missing the front left quarter panel.  Surveillance photos of the suspect vehicle are attached to this new release.  Surveillance video of Mr. Duke and the suspect vehicle can be found on the HPD YouTube channel at
