Investigation into Fatal Shooting at 8405 Wilcrest Drive

The fatal shooting of a man at 8405 Wilcrest Drive about 4:15 p.m. on Wednesday (June 12) will be referred to a Harris County grand jury.
The identity of the deceased male is pending verification by the Harris County Institute of Forensic Sciences.
The male shooter, 26, was transported to an area hospital with a non-life-threatening gunshot wound.
HPD Homicide Division Detectives S. Chettry and M. Barton reported:
HPD patrol officers responded to a home invasion call at an apartment complex at the above address and found two males with gunshot wounds.  Houston Fire Department paramedics responded to the scene and transported both males to an area hospital, where one was pronounced deceased.
A preliminary investigation determined one of the males forced his way into the other male’s apartment and a struggle ensued.  The surviving male (tenant) was shot at least once in the leg before he managed to take the gun away and shoot the other male (suspect).
The Harris County District Attorney’s Office was contacted and it was determined the case will be reviewed by a Harris County grand jury.
