Incident at 9000 Carsondale

August 12, 2005 -- Houston police are investigating the fatal shooting of a man at 9000 Carsondale about 12:30 a.m. today (August 12).

The victim has been identified as David Louis Davis, 55, of 407 Trichelle in Pasadena. He suffered a gunshot wound to the head and back and was pronounced dead at the scene.

HPD Homicide Division Sergeant M. W. McStravick and Officer I. F. Flores reported:

Davis, along with a female friend, got into his vehicle in the parking lot of a local bar at 9210 Winkler. The female was sitting in the driver seat while Davis sat in the passenger seat of the vehicle. The female noticed two males, only described as Hispanic, beating on an individual outside the bar. A third male, also described only as Hispanic, turned toward Davis' vehicle and displayed a handgun. The male appeared to be in his early 20s with a crew cut. The female backed out of the parking space and struck another vehicle also attempting to back out. The male then fired at Davis' vehicle multiple times, striking Davis in the head and back. The female drove to the 9000 block of Carsondale where she flagged down a wrecker driver.

Anyone with information in this case is urged to contact the HPD Homicide Division at (713) 308-3600 or Crime Stoppers at (713) 222-TIPS.
