HPD Homicide Division Sergeant M. Arrington and Detective A. Hernandez reported:
HPD patrol officers responded to a shooting call at the convenience store at the above address and located a male victim inside the business. He had suffered multiple gunshot wounds. Houston Fire Department paramedics transported the man to an area hospital, where he was pronounced deceased.
Detectives learned the victims were inside a white Mercedes Benz in the parking lot. The suspect, Redmond, exited the front passenger seat of a black Nissan Altima and entered the Mercedes. Surveillance video evidence indicated at least one shot was fired. One victim exited the driver’s seat of the Mercedes and ran into the business. The Nissan fled the scene, followed by the Mercedes, stolen and being driven by Redmond.
Officers located the second victim on the roadway in the 1000 block of Pearland Parkway. It appeared he was thrown from the vehicle (Mercedes). He had suffered multiple gunshot wounds. Pearland Fire Department paramedics pronounced the man deceased at the scene.
Patrol officers later observed the stolen Mercedes and attempted a traffic stop. The driver failed to comply and a pursuit ensued. It ended when the Mercedes rolled over and crashed in the 2200 block of Dixie Farm Road. Redmond was in the driver’s seat of the stolen vehicle. Paramedics transported him to an area hospital with minor injuries. Redmond admitted to his role in the shooting and subsequent incidents.
HPD officers later located the Nissan Altima at a residence in Pearland, Texas. Officers took Johnson into custody without incident. He later admitted to being the driver of the Nissan.
The Harris County District Attorney’s Office was consulted and both suspects were charged for their roles in the incident.
