Victim Gets Shot While Attempting to Stop a Robbery

Crime Stoppers and the Houston Police Department’s Robbery Division need the public's assistance identifying the suspect responsible for an aggravated robbery with a deadly weapon (possible jugging incident).

On Saturday, August 24, 2019 at around 2:00 pm, the complainant owns a business and withdrew money from a bank located in Spring in order to pay his employee’s. The complainant drove to one of his employee’s residence at the 5400 block of Fairchild, in Houston, Texas. The complainant exited his vehicle while his wife sat in the passenger seat waiting for him. The complainant then walked up to the residence and while talking to his employee, he heard his wife screaming.

According to the complainant’s wife, while she was sitting in the passenger seat of the vehicle, an unknown male exited a silver four-door sedan with dark window tint and opened the driver’s side door. The suspect pointed a handgun at the female in the passenger seat and said that he would shoot her if she did not give up her purse.

The complainant then ran towards his wife and saw a silver sedan parked next to his vehicle and a male trying to take her purse. The complainant attempted to intervene and the suspect immediately shot him in the chest and his hand. The suspect then got into the passenger seat of the silver sedan and drove away. The suspect vehicle then backed up and drove by the residence once again before fleeing. Houston PD #1097656-19
