HOUSTON—Police say a man was fatally shot in a robbery attempt after a car of suspects followed him from Pasadena to his home in southeast Houston Saturday night.

John Steven Martinez, 45, was reportedly returning home after visiting family in Pasadena when he pulled in his driveway at Ashburn and Kopman around 10 p.m.

A vehicle appeared and two men got out, attempted to rob the man and shot him, according to authorities. The victim was transported to Ben Taub hospital where he later died.

Officers say that the suspects followed the victim from where he was in Pasadena.

An investigator at the scene said that the victim’s family was inside the home when the altercation occurred, and that they are among several witnesses who looked outside at the sound of gunshots.

The suspects are not in custody. The case is still under investigation.
