Incident at 2010 Winrock #802

June 14, 2007 - The fatal shooting of a man at 2010 Winrock #802 about 8:45 p.m. on Wednesday (June 13) will be referred to a Harris County grand jury.

The deceased male is identified as Daniel M. Reed, 41. He suffered multiple gunshot wounds and was pronounced dead at the scene.

HPD Homicide Division Sergeant R. Odom and Officer K. Carr reported:

Reed was at home with his mother and son when he (Reed) began verbally abusing his mother. The abusive behavior escalated when Reed threatened his mother with a knife. Reed’s stepfather arrived home from work and attempted to calm Reed. When those attempts failed, the stepfather said he went to a bedroom in the apartment and retrieved a handgun, fearing for the safety of he and his wife. Reed continued to abuse his mother and assaulted her by throwing and striking her with a nearly full can of beer. The mother went to her bedroom to change her clothes. As Reed followed his mother into her bedroom, the stepfather shot him multiple times.

Investigators questioned the stepfather and released him without charges.
