TEXAS CITY — Police are looking for the person responsible for shooting and killing a man early Wednesday morning on the city's east side.

At about 12:50 a.m. police were called to a house in the 1200 block of First Avenue North after callers reported hearing shooting.

When officers got to the house they found the body of Khiry Marquez Wilson, 21, of Texas City lying in the yard near the house. Wilson was shot several times, Texas City Police Chief Robert Burby said.

Why Wilson, who lives on the city's west side, was at the house was unclear, police said.

Investigators do not have suspects in the shooting so far, Burby said.

Anyone with information about the shooting should call Texas City Crime Stoppers at 409-945-8477.
