According to police, Marquez was working and driving in the area when he possibly encountered a white Ford Expedition SUV. Investigators say Marquez was approaching the suspect when the suspect fired several shots and then fled on foot. Witnesses told police the white SUV then fled the scene. Investigators believe the suspect was a passenger in the SUV.

Marquez was shot at least one time. He was taken to Houston Northwest Medical Center where he was later pronounced deceased.
