Stafford police are investigating the shooting death of a man at the Super 8 Motel.
On Tuesday afternoon, December 19, about 5:21pm, Stafford police responded to a 911 shots fired call at the Super 8 Motel in the 12800 block of FM 1092. When officers arrived on the scene they discovered a deceased man in a ground floor room who had been shot multiple times. “As part of the investigation, Detectives reviewed the surveillance video from the hotel and observed a red two door convertible, possibly a 1997-2000 Chrysler Sebring, pull into the motel and back into a parking space near the victim’s room,” said Stafford police spokesman Raphael Virata. He went on to explain that witnesses told police that two black males had gotten out of that car and gone into the victim’s room.
Virata said, “After approximately two minutes multiple gunshots were heard and the suspects were seen running from the room. They got into the convertible and left the scene at a high rate of speed.” The Stafford Police Department is asking the public for their help in identifying the suspects in this case. Anyone with information is asked to contact Crime Stoppers at 281-342-TIPS or Det. A. Mutchler at 281-261-3950
The identity of the victim has not yet been released.
