Armed Suspect Fatally Shot at 12901 Queensbury

February 2, 2008 - Houston police are investigating the fatal shooting of an armed suspect by an off-duty United States Customs agent at 12901 Queensbury Lane about 7:30 p.m. on Friday (Jan. 30). 

The male suspect suffered a gunshot wound and was pronounced dead at the scene.  His identity is pending verification by the Harris County Medical Examiner’s Office. 

HPD Homicide Division Sergeant J. D. Shirley and Officer J. Robles reported: 

An off-duty U.S. Customs agent was making a purchase inside of a liquor store at 12901 Queensbury when a suspect came into the store with a firearm and ordered everyone to get on the ground.  The agent pulled out his weapon and ordered the suspect to drop his weapon.  The suspect ignored the order and pointed his weapon at the agent.  Fearing for his life, the agent fired his weapon and struck the suspect at least once.  A second male suspect then entered the store, fired at the agent through the doorway and then fled on foot in an unknown direction. 

Anyone with information on the whereabouts of the second suspect is urged to contact the HPD Homicide Division at 713-308-3600 or Crime Stoppers at 713-222-TIPS.
