    "Ash" is well known in this area as a craft beer enthusiast and distributor. He owned a distributing company which he sold in December. He was killed (targeted, according to LE) by someone who shot him as he answered the door, at home, in front of his children.

    There was apparently a lawsuit filed against him in 2010. Don't know if it means anything.

    LE is clearly saying this is NOT a random shooting.

    Investigation in progress

    At this time, KHOU reports that investigators are looking into a 2010 lawsuit against Rowell and his mother, who helped secure the company's initial liquor license.

    Court documents show that an original business partner in the company — the brother of Rowell's wife — was seeking financial retribution for being forced into selling his half of the company "at an unfair and reasonable price" in 2010.

    The case was dismissed in July 2012, with roughly $600 in court costs going to the former partner.

    That's interesting, TexasCharm. Unless I'm mistaken, I did some research and he had a brother in law that is a Houston police officer.

    I wonder if the beer distributorship sold for big money.
