Fatal Stabbing at 7700 West Street

November 6, 2009 - Houston police are investigating the fatal stabbing of a male suspect at 7700 West Street about 3:15 p.m. on Thursday (Nov. 5).

The suspect, 27, suffered multiple stab wounds and was transported to Ben Taub General Hospital where he was pronounced dead. His identity is pending notification to family members by the Harris County Medical Examiner’s Office.

HPD Homicide Division Sergeant J. Rubio and Officer R. Figueroa reported:

Two unknown male suspects arrived at a residence at 7700 West Street and found a male with whom they had arguments in the past, in front of his residence. One of the suspects approached the male and got into an argument while the second suspect waited in a vehicle. As the argument escalated, the second suspect exited the vehicle and ran after the male, who then ran inside his residence and locked the door. As the first suspect waited outside, the second suspect kicked in the door of the residence and got into a fight with the male. At some point during the fight, the male stabbed the suspect.

The case will be reviewed by the Harris County District Attorney’s Office.
