Binel Gasery, 33, and Bradley James Barker, 25, were the victims shot and killed in what police are calling a drug deal gone bad.

Witnesses told police the shooter was in a dark color sedan with tinted windows and an unknown license plate. At least one witness said the shooter got out of the sedan with a "machine gun" in his hand, opening fire on the victims' Nissan Sentra as the victims backed up on the freeway to try and get away. 

In court documents, police later said the weapon used was possibly an AK-47 or AR-15, according to multiple witness statements. 

Further investigation led to the identification of Aleman, Hernandez and Casaya as suspects in this case and they were charged for their roles in the shooting. 

Casya, the wanted suspect, is described only as a Hispanic man who is about 5 feet 6 inches tall and weighs about 150 pounds.  

Anyone with information on his whereabouts is urged to contact the HPD Homicide Division at 713-308-3600 or Crime Stoppers at 713-222-TIPS.
