On July 23, 2017, League City resident Clarence James Humphrey was shot and killed in a failed robbery attempt that occurred in front of the League City house where he was staying. The four males suspected in the shooting left the scene before police arrived.

The League City Police Department continues to investigate this case in an attempt to identify the remaining suspects.  Anyone with information is asked to contact League City Detective Austin Frakes at 281-554-1865.
