May 10, 2024 - The fatal shooting of a man at 12023 Bissonnet Street about 4:25 a.m. today (May 10) will be referred to a Harris County grand jury.

The identity of the deceased male, 31, is pending verification by the Harris County Institute of Forensic Sciences.  

The male shooter, 67, was not injured in the incident.  

HPD Homicide Division Detectives M. Castillo and K. Hale reported:

HPD patrol officers responded to a shooting call at an apartment complex at the above address and found the male suffering from a gunshot wound. Paramedics pronounced him deceased at the scene.

The first male told investigators the second male was threatening him with a knife and accusing him of stealing from him. Fearing for his life, he shot the second male. The first male attempted to render aid, then called 911 and remained on scene until officers arrived.

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