Update on Incident at 10000 Long Point

August 9, 2005 -- A suspect has been arrested and charged in the fatal shooting of a man at 10000 Long Point on January 3, 2005.

An investigation has led to the identity of the suspect as Demarcus Lee Watson (b/m, DOB 12-30-81) of 20002 Foxhaven Lane in Humble. Watson is charged with murder in the 176th State District Court.

The victim, Jerrell Dante Deyon, 17, of 311 Harold Lane in Baytown suffered multiple gunshot wounds and was pronounced dead at Ben Taub General Hospital.

HPD Homicide Division Officers R. Moreno, R.P. Martinez and T.J. McCorvey reported:

It appeared two different parties were involved in a shootout on the parking lot of the Connections Club in the 10000 block of Long Point about 2:35 a.m. on January 3. The shooting occurred several hundred feet east of the club. When officers arrived, the victim was found lying on the ground.

At the time, it appeared the victim was an innocent bystander attempting to flee the area when the shooting began.

Several witnesses were interviewed but could not provide any information on who the suspect(s) might have been. There was no indication of trouble inside the club prior to its closing. The parking lot was crowded and full of bystanders when the incident occurred.

Watson surrendered to authorities after learning he had been charged on August 1.
