Incident at 7440 Dillon

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.

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