- Houston police and a family from Clear Lake are asking for your help to find the person responsible for killing a man who was patrolling a neighborhood.

It’s almost been a month since 55-year-old Robert Marquez was shot and left to die while he was out patrolling in north Houston.

Police and private investigators don’t have much to go off of but a few photos. His widow just wanting to bring closure for her family.

“He loved with his whole heart. Never held back. He just loves to have fun. Very giving,“ says Robert's wife, Sara Marquez. "They just want to be able to know who. They want answers to who did this.”

On June 9, Robert Marquez was out patrolling the area of Rushcreek and Ella in north Houston. He drove up to a man and moments later was shot multiple times.

“From what I know, from what I’ve been told, he was patrolling the property and someone tried to rob him and that is when he gave pursuit,“ says Sara.

The father of four was transported to the hospital where he was pronounced dead.

Houston police were told by witnesses they saw a black male running from the scene. HPD released photos of the car they believe the suspect fled in. They are looking for gray 2003 Ford Explorer with the license plates CBK 4469.
