Homicide detectives in Harris County have taken over the investigation into a brutal mid-March assault that resulted in the death of a 65-year-old convenience store clerk, Muhammad Maqsood. The attack occurred at the store located at 19712 Tomball Parkway, a detail confirmed through a post from the official HCSO X account.

The Harris County Precinct 4 Constable’s Office initially worked the case, but after Maqsood succumbed to his injuries, the HCSO Homicide Division is now actively seeking any information that may shed light on the circumstances surrounding the assault. In efforts to quickly find those responsible, they are encouraging the public to come forward with any relevant details by contacting 713-274-9100 or the Crime Stoppers of Houston directly at 713-222-8477.

The case, that has now turned from an assault to a homicide investigation, has investigators working tirelessly to piece together the events of March 14. The original incident was not widely covered in media at the time, but the death of Maqsood has escalated the urgency and visibility of the case. The community has been prompted to help via an official post from the HCSO urging assistance.

As the law enforcement dives deeper into the investigation, they have yet to release any additional details about suspects or motives behind the attack. They continue to encourage anyone with information to step up and contact authorities, to help bring to justice swiftly those who are responsible for this incident.
