Incident at 7930 Corporate

November 13, 2005 -- Houston police are investigating the fatal shooting of a man at 7930 Corporate on November 12, 2005 about 3:30 p.m.

The victim is identified as Quentin Jamal Thomas, 26. He suffered a gunshot wound and was pronounced dead at the scene.

The suspect is a b/m in his late 20s to mid 30s. He is 5'06" to 5'08" feet tall and approximately 200 to 300 pounds. He is described as being bald with a "beer belly."

The suspect was wearing a red muscle T-shirt with black shorts and seen as the passenger in a black Toyota or Nissan pick up truck. The truck has red lettering on the tailgate and tinted windows.

HPD Homicide Division Sergeant M.D. Newcomb and Officer T. Huynh reported:

Thomas was standing at a convenience store at Beechnut and Corporate when the suspect (a passenger of the pick-up truck), pulled up and confronted Thomas with a gun. Thomas fled northbound on Corporate with the suspect chasing him on foot. Thomas ran to the office of an apartment complex, which was already closed for the day and thus locked. The suspect caught up with Thomas and shot him on the steps of the apartment complex leasing office. The suspect fled on foot from the scene.

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.
