They found the man's pockets were turned outward and believed it could be a robbery or a vehicle was stolen.


According to police, the investigation later led officers to the victim's stolen vehicle in Missouri City, and a pursuit ensued.

Police say the stolen vehicle crashed in Sugar Land near US 59 and Highway 6, and three males got out and started running. They were all detained and interviewed by homicide detectives.

Police say Bennett was then charged in the shooting, and the other two males were charged with evading arrest in Fort Bend County.
