The unidentified man is 6 feet 2 inches tall, 498 pounds, according to the Harris County Institute of Forensic Sciences. He has short, dark brown wavy hair with a slight mustache and a goatee, and was found wearing white size 11 Nikes.

Among those victims who have been unidentified, ages range from 14 to 27, Houston Mayor Sylvester Turner confirmed on Saturday.

Twenty-five people were hospitalized in total Friday night, 13 of whom were still being treated Saturday afternoon.

Five people hospitalized were under the age of 18, and at least one person injured was 10 years old, according to Harris County Judge Lina Hidalgo.
