Incident at 4500 North Freeway

February 3, 2006 -- A male suspect who fired shots at several motorists was fatally shot by officers from multiple law enforcement agencies in the 4500 block of the North Freeway about 2:30 p.m. on Thursday (Feb. 2).

The suspect, Jeremy Roberson (b/m, DOB: 2-8-77), was pronounced dead at the scene.

HPD Homicide Division Officers T. S. Tyler and M. S. Walker reported:

The suspect led multiple law enforcement agencies on a vehicle pursuit after kidnapping his girlfriend and her four-year-old daughter, who were both inside the fleeing vehicle. During the chase, the suspect fired a weapon at officers and another motorist who was traveling on the freeway. The chase ended after the vehicle rear-ended a truck on the freeway and rolled to a stop. As the officers approached the vehicle, the suspect was still holding the weapon. After the suspect refused to obey their verbal commands to drop the weapon, officers fatally shot him.

As is customary in all officer-involved shootings in the city limits, the incident is being investigated by the HPD Homicide and Internal Affairs Divisions and the Harris County District Attorney's office.
