HOUSTON — Police are searching for a murder suspect and have released a sketch composite of whom they believe committed a fatal shooting.

On March 4, 40-year-old Graylon Rucker was shot and killed at 718 Country Place Drive around 7:05 p.m. in Houston. Officials said two Spring Branch police officers were in the area when they heard multiple gunshots and responded to the scene.
