May 18, 2005 -- Houston police
are investigating the fatal shooting of two men at 7440 Dillon
about 7:45 p.m. on Tuesday, May 17, 2005.
The deceased victim is identified as Horace Allen
Paul, 57, of 7542 Almeda Genoa Rd. He suffered gunshot wounds
and was pronounced dead at the scene. The suspect's identification
is pending notification of next of kin. He also suffered gunshot
wounds and was pronounced dead at the scene.
HPD Homicide Division Sergeant J.T Wyers and
Officer D. R. Shorten reported:
Witnesses said Paul was a business owner in the
area and was taking a female employee home. The female employee
arrived home where she found the suspect, a man with whom she
had been having an affair with, inside. It appears the suspect
broke into her home and was armed with her husband's weapon. The
female went outside and advised Paul that she had a problem. Paul,
who held a concealed handgun license, went inside to confront
the suspect and shots were fired.
