HCSO hopes you recognize these men

HARRIS COUNTY, Texas - Surveillance video has been released after a man was killed in front of his family during an attempted carjacking.

The Harris County Sheriff's Office is hoping that the public will be able to help them identify two men seen in the surveillance video.


Around 11 p.m. Saturday, Pedro Aguilar, 47, along with his wife and 10-year-old daughter were returning home to their apartment located on Richcrest Drive at Greenbriar Park. 

Aguilar was parking the car on the street when a sedan pulled up. Two men held him at gunpoint while he was still in the driver's seat of his vehicle.

Deputies said the suspects told him to get out. The two suspects then got into the car but were unable to drive it because it was a standard stick shift. 

Deputies said at that point one of the suspects shot Aguilar in the chest. He died at the scene in front of his family. 

Deputies say that the man with the gun was described as a black man wearing a black hoodie. The second was described as a light-skinned black man or possibly Hispanic man, wearing a long-sleeve white shirt.

The investigation is ongoing. Anyone with information is asked to contact HCSO Homicide at (713) 274-9100 or Crime Stoppers at (713) 222-8477.
