Incident at 6345 Windswept Lane #G

March 12, 2007 -- Houston police are investigating the fatal shooting of a man at 6345 Windswept Lane #G on March 11, 2007 about 1:30 a.m.

The victim is identified as Bernardo Mondragon, 20. He sustained a gunshot wound to the chest and was transported to Memorial Hermann Hospital where he was later pronounced dead.

HPD Homicide Division Sergeant J. Brooks and Officer M. Waters reported:

A licensed uniformed-armed security guard was working at the Taqueria Turitzio when Mondragon showed up intoxicated. Mondragon has threatened the armed security guard with a gun in the past. On this occasion he was told by the security guard and several witnesses to leave the premises, but he ignored the commands and instead he began assaulting the security guard. Mondragon also assaulted his ex-girlfriend in the parking lot when she tried to intervene. He then attempted to take the guard’s duty weapon and the security guard, fearing for his life, fired his weapon one time striking Mondragon in the chest. Mondragon’s companion at the scene sped away in Mondragon’s silver Mustang.

The case will be referred to a Harris County grand jury.
