Update on Incident at 1018 Redondo

October 11, 2005 -- Houston police homicide investigators have released a composite sketch of one of two suspects wanted in the fatal shooting of one man and wounding of another at 1018 Redondo about 11:45 p.m. on October 1.

The deceased victim is identified as Jose Luis Jasso, 49, of 1018 Redondo. He suffered multiple gunshot wounds and was pronounced dead at the scene. A second male victim, shot in both legs, was transported to Ben Taub General Hospital in stable condition.

The suspects are described as Hispanic males in their early 20s. The shooter is about 5 feet 7 to 5 feet 10 inches tall and the second suspect is about 5 feet 5 inches tall. Both suspects are believed to weigh 120 to 130 pounds. A composite sketch of the shooter is attached to this news release.

HPD Homicide Division Officers P.J. Guerrero, J. Selvera, P. Yochum and R. Chappell reported:

The surviving victim and another witness stated that Mr. Jasso had gone outside to look for his cat when he confronted two unknown males who were apparently trying to steal a bicycle from the carport. The suspects demanded the bike or a ride. Jasso told them he could not give them a ride and an argument ensued. The surviving victim and the witness went outside to help Jasso. At that time, one of the suspects pulled out a gun and started shooting.

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.
