Update on Incident at 1800 Campbell Street

August 29, 2005 -- The fatal shooting of a man at 1800 Campbell Street about 4:30 a.m. on August 22 will be referred to a Harris County grand jury.

The male victim, identified as Casey Wayne Burley, 33, address unknown, was shot twice in the chest and pronounced dead at the scene.

HPD Homicide Division Sergeant T. C. Bloyd and Officer D. L. Robertson reported:

A witness discovered the victim's body in the 1800 block of Campbell near the intersection of Maury. Between the hours of 2 a.m. and 3 a.m., area residents heard gunshots, but did not see anything. At this time, robbery does not appear to be the motive in this shooting. The victim's wallet was found in his pocket, but he did not have any identification on him.

After investigators learned Burley's identity, a follow-up investigation was conducted and revealed that Burley had broken into the suspect's residence at 219 Maury and attacked him with a baseball bat. The suspect, Jorge Garcia Rosales (H/m, DOB 2-14-77), said he shot Burley in self-defense.
