Shooting Incident at 5200 Pederson
February 25, 2010 - Charges are pending against a suspect wounded by an HPD officer in the 5200 block of Pederson about 11:05 p.m. on Wednesday (Feb. 24).
The suspect, Steven Sevan Guidry (b/m, DOB: 6-17-68), faces a charge of interfering with public duties. Guidry suffered a gunshot wound to the neck and was transported to Ben Taub General Hospital and is expected to survive his injuries.
Senior Police Officer B. D. Green, who discharged his duty weapon, was not injured in this incident. Officer Green is assigned to the Southeast Patrol Division and was sworn in as an officer in February 1996.
HPD Homicide Division Sergeant T. Biggs and Officers K. Lopez and J. French reported:
Officer Green stopped a vehicle for a traffic violation in the 5200 block of Pederson. He approached the vehicle and asked the driver several times to get out of the vehicle. The suspect refused and, as Officer Green attempted to take the suspect into custody, both men got into a struggle. During the struggle, the suspect reached into his waistband as if to get a weapon. Fearing for his safety, Officer Green discharged his duty weapon at least once and struck the suspect. The suspect was then taken into custody and transported to the hospital.
As is customary in HPD officer-involved shootings in the city limits, this case will be investigated by the Homicide and Internal Affairs Divisions, as well as the Harris County District Attorney’s Office.
