HOUSTON (AP) – Houston police say a doctor was fatally shot as he rode his bicycle through the city’s Texas Medical Center by an unidentified man who was also on a bike.
    
Houston Police Executive Assistant Chief Troy Finner says the shooting happened around 9 a.m. Friday as the doctor was going northbound through the medical center.
    
Finner says the suspect rode past the doctor, turned and fired two shots.
    
The doctor was hit at least once. He was taken to a nearby hospital, where he died.
    
His name was not immediately released. Police say he was a doctor at Houston Methodist Hospital.
    
Finner says the search continues for the suspect.
