Incident at 9618 Marlive Lane

January 15, 2007 -- Houston police are investigating the fatal shooting of a man at 9618 Marlive Lane on January 14, 2007 at 6:25 p.m.

The victim is identified as Jose Baez, 19, of 9618 Marlive Lane. He sustained gunshot wounds and was transported to Memorial Hermann Hospital by family members.

The suspect sustained a gunshot wound and was transported to Ben Taub General Hospital.

HPD Homicide Division Sergeant T. Huynh and Officer K. Carr reported:

HPD officers were called to a shooting incident at 9618 Marlive Lane. When officers arrived they found evidence from the shooting but learned that Mr. Baez had been transported to the hospital where he died upon arrival. It appears that Mr. Baez had been involved in an on-going dispute with the suspect’s family. The suspect went to Mr. Baez’s residence and the pair got into an argument. The argument resulted in a shooting and both males were struck.

The injured suspect fled on foot to a location nearby where the police and medical personnel were called. Officers learned that this second call involved the suspect of the shooting at Marlive Lane. He was transported to the hospital and it was last reported that he went into surgery with a gunshot wound to the abdomen.

The investigation is ongoing with charges pending the review of the case by the Harris County District Attorney’s office.

Anyone with additional information in this case is urged to contact the HPD Homicide Division at 713-308-3600 or Crime Stoppers at 713-222-TIPS.
