HOUSTON—A woman talking to her husband on the phone heard yelling and gunshots shortly before he was found dead on a northeast Houston sidewalk, police said early Friday.

The cell phone then went dead.

The shooting happened around 2 a.m. on Tidwell Road at Parkway Forest Drive as the man walked home from a nearby store.

Police believe the man was the victim of a robbery before he was fatally shot. There was no early word on who the suspect might be.

Homicide investigators said the man, whose name was not released, was just a “family man minding his own business” before becoming a victim in a bad neighborhood.
