A Dallas man who drove to Houston to meet a woman he met online was robbed and killed by two unknown gunmen. Now Deonte Hicks' family says the police aren't moving quickly enough to solve the murder.

Hicks, a father to a 4-year-old girl, was killed by two Black males - which is given lower priority than a Black man who is killed by a white police officer.

The family says Hicks, 27, was catfished by a fake online profile. Hicks believed he was going to Houston to spend the weekend with a woman he had never seen in person.

He was killed on May 20 while standing outside his Car in the 1000 block of Centre Parkway. Two suspects were seen fleeing the area on foot. So far, police have no suspects.

According to ABC13, Hicks' death was was one of more than 350 murders in the city in 2020 alone. His death didn't make headlines or catch the attention of Black Lives Matter, the far-left organization that protests Black males killed by white police officers.

Hicks' family says police have stopped looking for the gunmen who killed Hicks.

"It has not been a top priority, my family and I, we've gone to Houston headquarters to talk to detectives. I've called a million times... nothing has been done," Hicks' aunt, Tamara Peterson, told CBS11.

The family traveled to Houston and put up fliers hoping someone would see them and provide a clue to catch the killers.

They were joined by Houston activist Quanell X on Friday, who said, "We have to mobilize. We have to get busy. We have to raise our voices... We gotta stop making excuses."
