AUSTIN -- Investigators had a new lead Tuesday in the murder of a 23-year-old in downtown Austin last weekend.

Police say Bennie Heslip was with friends at East 11th and Trinity early Sunday, March 31 when another group approached them. A fight turned violent and Heslip was shot.

Police released a sketch of the shooter Tuesday. The suspect is described as a black man, in his early 20s, and about 6 feet tall. He is of a thin build.

Police say the suspect left the scene with three women in this black sedan, similar to a Dodge Avenger.

Detectives think the group may be from Waco.

Anyone with information is asked to contact police.
