Incident at 3600 Corksie Street

April 10, 2006 -- Houston police have questioned four of six juveniles in the death of a man found lying in the street in the 3600 block of Corksie on Sunday, April 9, 2006 around 1:43 p.m.

According to HPD Homicide Division Sergeant T. Hernandez and Officer X. Avila, the victim, 46-year-old Anthony Ray Whitlock of 3630 Corksie was walking about one block from his home when he got into a verbal confrontation with a group of juveniles. Mr. Whitlock, who was carrying a wooden stick or small metal pipe, struck two of those juveniles during that confrontation.

As Mr. Whitlock continued to walk back to his home, he was confronted by the same juveniles along with additional juveniles, who were carrying objects in their hands. Mr. Whitlock swung the stick or pipe he was carrying at the juveniles and was struck in the head and face with the objects the juveniles were carrying. The juveniles fled the scene and left Mr. Whitlock lying in the middle of the street. He was transported to Ben Taub General Hospital where he died from his injuries.

That evening four juvenile suspects were turned in to police by their grandparents and gave statements on their version of this incident and were later released. Two additional juveniles are being sought for questioning. The investigation is continuing.

Anyone who may have witnessed this incident is asked to contact the Houston Police Department Homicide Division at 713-308-3600 or Crime Stoppers at 713-222-TIPS.
