Baytown police released surveillance videos Thursday of a vehicle thought to be involved in the shooting of an 84-year-old Baytown man. 

Authorities spent about a day poring over video from cameras in the Pinehurst neighborhood in an effort to locate any evidence that would lead to the identity of the shooter in this case. 

Baytown police said the elderly victim was walking with another man in the 9600 block of Pinehurst Drive around 6:30 a.m. Wednesday when a light-colored sedan, possibly a Chevrolet, with no front license plate drove up behind them and shot the 84-year-old man in the back. 

Lt. Steve Dorris, Baytown police spokesman, said the victim was conscious and talking at the time of the shooting and was flown to a Houston-area hospital where he underwent surgery. 

At last report, the victim was in stable condition and was able to speak with detectives Thursday, according to Dorris. 

Baytown police officers are still seeking the public’s help in finding the person who shot the elderly man, and hope recently released surveillance videos will solicit information. Readers can view the video online at http://baytownsun.com/video_4c6eeb84-a194-11e8-abaa-e348eab24ef2.html” 

“We hope the accompanying videos will jar the memory of anyone who may have been out in the neighborhood during the time frame of this incident,” Dorris said. 

Detectives have also conducted interviews with individuals close to the 84-year-old victim in the hopes that they will be able to shed some light on this case.  

“Detectives specifically want to know if there was anyone who may have wanted to harm the 84-year-old, those interviews continue as a normal part of the investigative process,” Dorris said. 

Dorris said they’ve also received a few tips up to this point, but nothing has panned out.
