March 24, 2006 -- Houston Police Homicide Division investigators are asking the public's help in identifying a suspect wanted for an aggravated robbery at 2218 Woodland Park Drive on March 18, 2006 about 6 p.m.

The Harris County Medical Examiner's office was able to positively identify the first suspect who was fatally shot by the victim of the robbery. He was identified as Jose Alberto Cabello (H/M, DOB: 03-25-53). Click here to view the suspect's photo.

The victim of the aggravated robbery, Mr. William Harvey, suffered gunshot wounds to the neck, side and lower back. He was transported to Ben Taub General 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 (Cabello) and was able to disarm him and shoot him. Cabello 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 a total of three suspects fled the scene, one of which may have also been shot by Mr. Harvey. One of the wanted suspects is described as a Hispanic male in his early twenties, about 5 feet 8 inches tall and skinny build (click here to view the composite sketch). The other two suspects remain unidentified at this time.

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.
