Investigation into Fatal Shooting at 8601 Broadway #1207

December 31, 2010 - Houston police are investigating the fatal shooting of a male suspect in a home invasion at 8601 Broadway #1207 about 10:50 p.m. on Thursday (Dec. 30).

The suspect, Miguel Antonio Valencia-Mejia, 33, of Houston, suffered a fatal gunshot wound and was pronounced dead at the scene.

No one else was injured.

HPD Homicide Division Officers M.R. Coleman and M.P. Condon reported:

An unknown female knocked on the apartment door at the above address and then hid from view.  A woman inside the apartment looked through the peephole and, not seeing anyone outside, opened the door.  The suspect, Miguel Antonio Valencia-Mejia, entered the apartment, grabbed the woman's hair and pointed a pistol at her head.  A male resident then exited the bedroom and, fearing for his girlfriend's life, shot the suspect one time with a rifle.

No charges have been filed in this case.  Anyone with information about the whereabouts of the female who knocked on the door is urged to contact the HPD Homicide Division at 713-308-3600 or Crime Stoppers at 713-222-TIPS.
