Incident at 1622 North Main
April 11, 2007 -- Houston police are investigating the fatal shooting of a man at 1622 North Main about 11:55 p.m. on Tuesday (Apr. 10).
The victim, identified as Danny Ray Alexander, 35, of 3418 Milbrad, suffered a gunshot wound and was pronounced dead at Ben Taub General Hospital.
HPD Homicide Division Sergeant C.W. Howard and Officer T.A. Andrade reported:
Mr. Alexander was standing outside the Poppa Burger restaurant at 1622 North Main. At the time, two other persons were arguing nearby. Alexander then walked to the back of the property where multiple shots were fired in his direction, wounding him. It is believed the gunshots were fired by a suspect or suspects driving in a maroon, extended cab truck.
It does not appear Alexander was involved in the original argument in any way. Investigators have not determined if those two individuals arguing were connected with the shooting.
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.
