HOUSTON – "There is a high probability the doctor was targeted."

That's the word from Houston police on the death of Dr. Mark Hausknecht, the cardiologist of former President George H.W. Bush.

The Houston Police Department has given updates on the case through its Twitter page.

The suspect is described as wearing a blue, short-sleeved polo shirt and khaki shorts at the time of the shooting. He had a khaki baseball hat on and was carrying a large, full olive green backpack.
