When deputies arrived, they learned three males were shot. One of them died after he was taken to a hospital nearby. Deputies determined that an unknown female was outside the store and was harassed by two or three males. 

Three males inside the store observed the alleged harassment and walked outside to help the female. As they approached the males outside, one of them fired a weapon. 

One male was shot in the leg and ran behind the store to an apartment complex. The second male was shot in the back. They were both taken to hospitals with injuries determined not to be life-threatening. 

Deluna, the shooting suspect, is described as heavy set Hispanic male, wearing a black and red two-tone shirt, blue jeans, and white tennis shoes. He and the other suspects were seen in a black-colored Lincoln Navigator with a gray-colored front bumper. 

The second subject is described as a older Hispanic man between the ages of 40 and 50 years old with a medium-to-heavy build who wore a blue and white plaid or striped jacket and a light colored t-shirt with blue jeans. 

The third person inside the Lincoln Navigator is described as a medium-to-heavy set Hispanic male who wore a black jacket and a light blue or turquoise shirt. 

Anyone with information on the identity of the other suspects is encouraged to contact the Harris County Sheriff’s Office homicide unit by phone at 713-274-9100.
