An 18-year-old Pasadena man was killed Friday night at a gas station at the intersection of Business 146 and Lee Drive.

Byron Handy was found dead on Lee Drive about 8 p.m. when police responded to a report of a shooting at the Oasis gas station, according to Baytown police spokesman Lt. Steve Dorris. 

Dorris said that Handy arrived at the station and met with someone in a light-colored Tahoe that was parked near the gas pumps. Handy walked to the passenger side of the vehicle, which then sped away with Handy hanging on to the door, Dorris said.

As the vehicle left the parking lot and turned north on Lee Drive, witnesses reported hearing at least one gunshot and Handy fell to the street.

Police are asking anyone with information about the murder to contact the homicide unit at 281-420-7181. To remain anonymous, you can contact Baytown Crime Stoppers at 281-427-TIPS (8477).
