May 4, 2006 -- Houston police robbery investigators are asking for the public's help in identifying a suspect responsible for the robbery and shooting of a man in the 100 block of Coach Lamp Lane.

The gunman is described as a black male in his mid 20s to early 30s, 6 feet tall and 180 pounds. Click here for a composite sketch of the gunman.

HPD Robbery Division Officer J.C. Taylor reported:

On Tuesday (Apr. 18) at about 4:10 p.m., two black male suspects approached an elderly man and his 44 year-old son in their driveway. The gunman chambered a round into a black and silver gun and demanded their property. Believing that he was about to be shot, the older male victim struck the gunman in the head with a heavy object. The gunman then struck the elderly victim in the head with his gun. The younger victim, fearing for his father's life, began fighting with the gunman who then placed the gun to the younger man's chest and fired. The suspects fled with one of the victim's wallet in a blue Ford Taurus or Contour with tinted windows. The rear windows of the suspect's vehicle are of a darker tint than the front ones.

Anyone with information in this case is urged to contact the HPD Robbery Division at 713-308-3700 or Crime Stoppers at 713-222-TIPS.
