The Harris County Sheriff’s Office is investigating a shooting death in the 7100 block of Harrison Street just north of Baytown Tuesday morning.

According to the Sheriff’s Office, deputies responded to a report of an unknown medical emergency at the location about 2:30 a.m. to find the man unresponsive in the driver’s seat of a small sedan.

EMS arrived and removed the man from the car and found he had suffered several gunshot wounds. He was pronounced dead at the scene.

The Sheriff’s Office said investigators have not yet determined any suspect information and ask anyone who knows about the crime to call the Sheriff’s Office at 713-221-6000 or Houston Crime Stoppers at 713-222-TIPS (8477).

The Sheriff’s Office did not release the man’s identity, but the Harris County Institute of Forensic Sciences web page identifies him as Kenny Cody, with no further identifying information.
