Police search for suspect in shooting off Fondren

- "My uncle trusted him to come to his house, my uncle really thought that was his friend and it's not fair how he killed him over $20 dollars just because my uncle didn't want to let him borrow $20 dollars", says Dayra Rios as she tries to understand why her uncle was shot.

Sunday morning Houston police were called to an apartment in the 11,300 block of Fondren. When they got to the scene they found Abel Sanchez had been shot dead.

"Witnesses at the location say that there was some type of argument between the suspect and the deceased and also informed officers that the possible suspect fled to this location", says executive assistant chief Troy Finner.

Houston SWAT teams were called out to the suspects home, but after several hours they went inside to find he wasn't there.

Sunday afternoon family and friends gathered outside of Sanchez's home to remember the man they all once knew and loved.

"He was very loved and he will be missed", says Katheryn Rubio, Abel's niece.

"He was really really kind, everybody knew him and he was a kind hearted person", says Rios.

Anyone with information is asked to call Crime Stoppers at 713-222-TIPS.
