HOUSTON, Texas Houston Police are seeking the public’s help in identifying two men suspected of shooting and killing a tow truck driver last night.

Sources at KHOU say the driver managed to take a photo of the two suspects before he died.







The victim has been identified as 48-year-old Augustin Martinez.

He was reportedly pronounced dead at the scene.

Police say the suspects can only be described as two Hispanic males between the ages of 30 and 40 in a red Ford Explorer.







Sources say Augustin was giving a ride to a customer when he got into a verbal altercation with the two suspects at the Casa Real Apartments on Little York Road.

The suspects then became hostile and one of them allegedly pulled a pistol and fired multiple shots at Augustin from the Ford Explorer into the two-truck.







Augustin was hit and tried to drive away.

Police say he crashed the vehicle and died at the scene.

The customer that had been riding with Augustin was not injured.

Anyone who can identify these two suspects is urged to call the HPD Homicide Division at 713-308-3600 or Crime Stoppers at 713-222-TIPS.
