Baytown police arrested two men Thursday night on drug possession charges and found one had an outstanding warrant for failure to report a felony in connection with a September homicide.
According to the criminal complaint on file with the Harris County District Clerk’s Office, 19-year-old Noe Eusevio Vazquez was present at the shooting death of 19-year-old George Hanks of Baytown on Sept. 28 in the 5800 block of Mary Ethel Road, in the Coady area.
The account said that Vasquez and Hanks were involved in a drug transaction with another man when a car drove up. Four men got out of the car, pistol whipped Vazquez and shot Hanks.
Vazquez then reportedly called a relative of Hanks and told him that Hanks was dead, but did not call police.
The police also discovered a photo of the scene Vazquez had posted on social media just prior to the shooting.
According to the report, the only report to law enforcement about the shooting came from an area resident.
