Houston police are asking for the public's help in identifying a suspect wanted in the fatal shooting of a male that occurred  at 8200 Cook Road about 1:50 a.m. on Nov. 20.  

The victim, Oscar Green, 47, was pronounced dead at the scene.  

The suspect is described only as a black male between 25 and 30 years of age, about 6 feet tall and with dreadlocks.  A Snapchat video of the suspect can be viewed on the HPD YouTube channel at

The identity of the victim is pending verification by the Harris County Institute of Forensic Sciences.
