Father of four shot to death while listening to music outside his home

Dante Green, 41, was shot several times before the suspect, or suspects, took off with his car. His mother was inside the home when the fatal shooting happened.

HOUSTON — A father of four was shot to death and his car was stolen during a carjacking overnight.

This happened just after midnight early Wednesday outside of a home located Boggess Road in northeast Houston.

Houston police say 41-year-old Dante Green was just sitting in his car in his own driveway listening to music when someone came up and shot him several times. The suspect, or suspects, then took off with Green’s car.

Sadly, Green died at the scene, police said. He lives with his mother, who is disabled and was inside the house when this all happened. His son was also asleep inside the home at the time if the carjacking.

“I never knew him to be a trouble maker, or anything like that. I’m still trying to figure out what’s going on and why would it happen," said neighbor Charles Prince.

Homicide detectives are looking for witnesses and hoping something was caught on surveillance video.

“He’s a nice guy. Minds his own business and everything," said another neighbor, Peter Francisco.

As for Green’s killer, or killers, police say the car they took off in has been listed as stolen, but they won’t be releasing the make or model until later today.

“Even if they don’t get caught, you got a conscience, it’s going to bother you. They’ve got to live with it, but judgement day will come," Prince said.

Police also asking anyone with information on the shooting to please call Crime Stoppers at 713-222-TIPS.
