TX: Houston Gunfight, Assailant Killed

The fatal shooting of a man at 868 Ringold Street about 10:05 p.m. on Saturday (May 4) is being referred to a Harris County grand jury.

The identity of the deceased man, 58, is pending verification by the Harris County Institute of Forensic Sciences.

The male shooter, 38, was not injured in the incident.

HPD Homicide Division Detectives D. Higgs and B. Stephens reported:

HPD patrol officers responded to a shooting at the above address and found a male unresponsive with multiple gunshot wounds in the driveway of a residence.  Houston Fire Department paramedics responded to the scene and pronounced the male deceased.  Officers then detained a male and several witnesses for questioning.

A preliminary investigation determined an argument ensued between the two males in the driveway of the residence.  One male produced a firearm and discharged several times at the other.  Fearing for his life, the second male retrieved a firearm from his vehicle and returned fire, fatally striking the other male.

The Harris County District Attorney’s Office was contacted and it was determined the case would be referred to a Harris County grand jury for review.
