HOUSTON — Two young individuals are wanted for the fatal shooting of a convenience store employee in Houston.

Around 11:45 p.m. on Sept. 27, a young black male and young black female confronted 37-year-old Yogesh Sharma at a convenience store on 6524 Weston Street and allegedly shot him while he was entering his vehicle.

The male is described as being shirtless with a beard, wearing a purple beanie hat, black track pants with white stripes and tan slides. His female companion is described as wearing a black bonnet, black tank top, purple track pants with white stripes and black slides/flip flops.

Police did not provide a possible motive for the crime.
