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
