Investigators need help identifying suspects who shot and killed an elderly man who was walking in his northwest Houston neighborhood.

Harris County Sheriff’s deputies responded to a call in the 11000 block of Springsong Dr., on November 7, at approximately 6 p.m. Upon arrival, they found 74-year-old Maglorio Reynaldo Cortes unresponsive in the roadway.

Deputies say neighbors heard gunshots and observed a 2010 or 2011 dark red or maroon colored 4-door Chevy Cruz with factory-tinted windows and wheels leaving the scene. Eyewitnesses said they say several light-skinned, Hispanic or white males inside the car.

Cortes was transported to Cy-Fair Hospital, where he died from a gunshot wound.

He leaves behind his wife of over 50 years, six children and several grandchildren and great grandchildren.

Anyone with information about the vehicle or the suspect(s) in this case is asked to call Crime Stoppers of Houston at 713-222-TIPS (8477).

Crime Stoppers will pay up to $5,000 for any information called in to the 713-222-TIPS (8477) or submitted online at that leads to the filing of felony charges or arrest of the suspect (s) in this case.
