August 30, 2006 -- Houston police

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

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.
