HPD Homicide Division Sergeants J.W. Belk and S. Kennedy reported:

Hollie was involved in an argument with his cousin, who ran to Wilder's apartment to seek refuge. Hollie attempted to follow his cousin into the apartment, but Wilder, who is cousins with Hollie and the man he was chasing, attempted to stop him from entering. Wilder tried to force Hollie out of his apartment when they began struggling over each other's guns. During the struggle Hollie was shot in his arm. He then wrestled Wilder to the ground, stood above him, and shot him several times in the back.

Hollie left the apartment but was found nearby in the complex and taken to Memorial Hermann Northwest Hospital. Hollie admitted to investigators that he was involved in a struggle with his cousin over the guns which resulted in the death of Wilder. Three other female witnesses and a small child were in the apartment at the time of the shooting.

Investigators are interested in speaking to a male named 'Will' who was seen
entering the apartment shortly after the shooting.
