Texas City police are investigating the case of man found shot to death on the Interstate 45 feeder road early Friday morning.

Police received an emergency call just after 2 a.m. from a passerby who thought there was a body lying in the feeder road in the 5500 block of I-45.

Police found an unidentified African-American man dead from what appeared to be several gunshot wounds.

The victim was described as being about 5 feet, 10 inches tall and weighing 200 to 215 pounds. He was wearing a black or gray windbreaker, black t-shirt, blue denim jeans and grey Nike tennis shoes.

Anyone with information about the incident or the identity of the victim should call detective Earl Mendenhall at 409-643-5833. Those wanting to remain anonymous should contact Mainland Community Crime Stoppers at 409-945-8477 or www.mainlandcrimestoppers.org.

If anyone knows anything - contact the police. Let's hope this isn't the beginning, dreadful start to another Killing Fields unsolved murder.

He was identified as Kenneth Wayne Norris of Houston, TX in another article. I cannot read the whole piece because it is premium.
