On Dec. 1, Mario Chavez was shot and killed during an attempted armed robbery in front of his home on Richey Street in Pasadena.

Chavez' family, along with the Pasadena Police Department and Houston Crime Stoppers, are now asking for the public's help in identifying the suspect.

According to police, Chavez had arrived at his residence in the 500 block of Richey after work just after 10 p.m. When Chavez returned to his vehicle to get something he was confronted by a male suspect in all-black clothing who attempted to rob him at gunpoint.
