Incident at 900 N. York

March 20, 2006 -- The body of a male is retrieved from a bayou located at 900 N. York on Sunday, March 19, 2006 at about 1:40 p.m.

According to Houston Police Department Homicide Division Sergeant H.R. Hernandez and Officer D.S. Vasquez, HPD patrol officers were dispatched to 900 N. York to meet with members of an Equisearch team who discovered the body of a male. The team was in the area conducting a search for a missing person when they located the body floating in the bayou.

The HPD Dive team made the scene and recovered the body, which appeared to have sustained multiple gunshot wounds to the head. The unidentified male was transported to the Harris County Medical Examiner's office where an autopsy will determine the victim's identity and cause of death.
