August 24, 2006 -- Charges have been filed against a suspect arrested in the fatal shooting of a convenience store clerk at 11660 Fuqua about 4:15 p.m. on August 21.

The suspect, identified as Stevdrick Jackson (b/m, DOB 4-10-81) of Rolling Fork, Mississippi, is charged with capital murder in the 263rd State District Court. He is accused in the killing of Hassan Tanvir Alam, 24, who suffered gunshot wounds to the chest and was pronounced dead at the scene.

HPD Homicide Division Sergeant N. Ruland and Officer M. Khan reported:

Customers entering the Gulf Palms Valero service station discovered Mr. Alam behind the counter. He had been shot twice during an apparent robbery.

Witnesses described a suspicious person seen outside the store as possibly being a black male, 6 feet to 6 feet 2 inches tall, 180 to 200 pounds, with a small mustache and faded haircut. The male was with a Hispanic female and possibly driving in an older model, black Cadillac with Mississippi license plates. Investigators were seeking to speak with those two individuals.

While following up the lead on the suspicious vehicle, investigators were alerted the same suspect had committed a robbery and stole someone's vehicle. The suspect was arrested by officers in Nueces County and was then interviewed by HPD homicide investigators. The female seen with Jackson was also interviewed and is being treated as a witness in this case at this time.
