Surveillance video stills released by Houston police homicide detectives show a man wanted for shooting a 26-year-old dead outside a corner store late Saturday night.

Police say the man seen in the photos was involved in some sort of argument with Tremond Garrett in the parking lot of a corner store in the 5400 block of Court Road near South Post Oak in far southwest Houston. At some point, the man in the photos pulled a gun and shot Garrett in the chest, police said.

After being shot, Garrett attempted to run away but collapsed in the middle of the road. Paramedics rushed to the scene and pronounced him dead, police said.
