Fort Bend Sheriff’s detectives are seeking the public’s help in identifying the man they believed killed a Sugar Land father and grandfather in a botched robbery in the Townewest subdivision. Tuesday morning, sheriff’s officials released a sketch of the suspect in the November 14, robbery/homicide where a man was killed in front of his grandchildren.
On Sunday evening, after 6 p.m., 53 year old Juvenio Guerra was approached by a man wearing a Halloween mask. Authorities believe Guerra was targeted by the masked man in an attempt to rob him as he pulled up to a residence in the 10,000 block of Overview. Reportedly, Guerra and his grandchildren, who were accompanying him, were on their way to get a movie. Sheriff’s spokesperson Terriann Carlson indicated that investigators believe the murder was the result of a robbery gone wrong. Guerra was shot, in front of his two young grandchildren, when he did not respond fast enough to the masked man’s demands. After being shot, Guerra was taken to a Sugar Land hospital where he succumbed to his injuries. Nothing is believed to have been taken in the robbery.
The suspect was last seen by onlookers walking away from Guerra’s still wearing his Halloween mask. Up until the sketch was made public the only suspect information available was that of a black man wearing a Halloween mask dressed in all black clothing.
