Incident at 716 Fenell

March 25, 2006 -- Houston police are investigating the fatal shooting of a man at 716 Fenell about 1:10 a.m. today (Mar. 25).

The identity of the victim is pending verification by the Harris County Medical Examiner's office.

HPD Homicide Division Sergeant B. Harris and Officer T. McCorvey reported:

The victim was shot inside one of three houses located at 716 Fenell. Investigators determined that the house located at the rear of the lot was being used to manufacture and sell narcotics and that the shooting was likely the result of a home invasion. According to witnesses, three Hispanic male suspects entered the residence and demanded money. A struggle between the victim and the suspects ensued and the victim was shot in the abdomen. The victim sought help at a neighbor's residence and was transported to Ben Taub General Hospital where he was pronounced dead. The suspects jumped into a vehicle and fled.

The suspects are only described as three Hispanic males driving a small compact 4-door vehicle.

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.
