Suspects Captured on Video Prior to Downtown Robberies

 On Sunday, January 8, 2023 at around 11:30 pm, the complainants were walking to their vehicle at a commercial parking lot at the 1800 block of St. Joseph Parkway (Downtown), in Houston, Texas. The complainants stated that as they were crossing the street, an unknown male exited a newer model white sedan and ran up to them while armed with a handgun and demanding their property. The complainants ran from the suspect, who then fired several rounds towards them, striking the male complainant twice and causing him to fall to the ground. The suspect ran up to the male complainant, but then turned around and ran back to the white sedan, and fled the scene. The victim was treated and released from the hospital. Houston PD #35317-23
