Houston resident Hank Bush is seeking answers following the fatal shooting of his 41-year-old son, Jason Bush, described as a reformed free spirit. The incident occurred on November 4 at approximately 5:23 p.m., shortly after Jason texted his father about taking a cruise and having a steak dinner.
An hour and a half after sending the text, Jason Bush was shot and killed in the parking lot of a gas station located at 1514 White Oak Drive. The Houston Police Department reports that the motive behind the shooting remains unknown. According to Hank Bush, one assailant approached Jason at close range, shot him twice, and then drove off. Speculations regarding the circumstances of the shooting include a potential road rage incident or a prearranged meeting.
The Houston Police recently released surveillance photos of two male suspects and a truck involved in the incident. Hank Bush expressed his dismay at not being informed by the police prior to the public release of the images, which he stumbled upon online. The images show the two men clearly, with Bush noting their distinctive appearances and expressing hope for their imminent identification.
In a message to the suspects, Hank Bush conveyed his belief that their freedom would be short-lived, advocating for their apprehension and the possibility of facing the death penalty. The tragic loss has left Bush with the enduring pain of having to bury his son, a burden he believes no parent should bear.
The Houston Police Department’s homicide division and Crime Stoppers are actively seeking information regarding the identities of the suspects. Anyone with information is urged to contact HPD’s homicide division or Crime Stoppers at 713-222-TIPS. The case remains under investigation as the community and the victim’s family await justice.
