Incident at 7400 Keller

August 30, 2006 -- Houston police are investigating the shooting of a man at 7400 Keller about 10:50 a.m. today (Aug. 30).

The victim is identified as Raymond Hernandez, 40, of 7310 Narcissus. He suffered a gunshot wound to the head and was in critical condition at an area hospital.

HPD Homicide Division Sergeant B.E. Roberts and Officer J. Sosa reported:

Mr. Hernandez was sitting on a bench near the basketball courts at Ingrando Park when a small beige/tan vehicle drove by east on Keller. The front seat passenger stuck his hand out the window and fired shots in Hernandez's direction, striking him one time. Paramedics were called and transported Hernandez to the hospital.

Though the location is known for narcotics and gang activity, it is unknown whether either of those factors played a role in the shooting.
