Deputies say unknown suspects fired multiple shots around 11 p.m. Saturday, breaking the glass store front of a business at Suite D31, 8520 Sweetwater Lane at Smart Street, and killing a person in the back room.

Authorities did not immediately release any suspect description or information about whether Carlton was the intended target of the late-night violence. But afterward, his friends and family took to Facebook to grieve the loss.

"Life is too short and we never know what the next second may bring," wrote Anthony Carlton, who described the slain man as a music-lover whose friends called him Peanut. "RIP (JJ) Jerry Carlton Jr. You will truly be missed I just spoke to you a couple days ago."

Anyone with tips about the killing can contact the Homicide Unit at (713) 274-9100 or call Crime Stoppers at (713) 222-TIPS.
