Mayor Turner Issues Statement on Arrest in Apparent Road Rage Murder
Mayor Sylvester Turner released the following statement regarding the arrest in the case of Paul Castro’s murder:

“I thank Police Chief Finner, HPD investigators, and the community for the collaboration that led to the surrender and arrest of the suspect. The constant flow of eyewitness tips, information about the vehicle, and the suspect’s description kept this crime front and center for several weeks.

“The arrest will not bring back 17-year-old Paul Castro, but I hope and pray that it brings comfort to his grieving family as they take a step toward justice and healing. This case is a tragic reminder that guns, road rage, and reckless behavior have deadly consequences.

“The shooting was senseless and indefensible, and we must work together to ensure that an incident like this never happens again in our City.”
