Incident at 2218 Woodland Park Drive

March 19, 2006 -- Houston police are investigating the fatal shooting of an aggravated robbery suspect at 2218 Woodland Park Drive on March 18, 2006 about 6 p.m.

The identity of the deceased male is pending an autopsy by the Harris County Medical Examiner's office.

The resident is identified as William Harvey, 34, of 2218 Woodland Park Drive. He suffered gunshot wounds to the neck, side and lower back and was transported to Ben Taub Hospital in stable condition.

HPD Homicide Division Sergeant J.T. Wyers and Officer T.S. Tyler reported:

Mr. Harvey was shot by suspects who forced their way into his residence, pulled guns and demanded money. The suspects held Mr. Harvey and his family at gunpoint and threatened to kill them. Mr. Harvey struggled with one of the suspects and was able to disarm him and shoot him. The suspect was pronounced dead at the scene. Mr. Harvey exchanged gunfire with at least one other armed suspect and was wounded during this exchange. It appears that in total three to four suspects fled the scene, one of which may have also been shot by Mr. Harvey before he left.

The suspects left in a newer Honda Accord, four-door vehicle, gray or silver in color with dark tinted windows and paper plates.

Anyone with information in this case is urged to contact the HPD Homicide Division at 713-308-3600 or Crime Stoppers at 713-222-TIPS.
