Suspect Arrested, Charged in Incident at 1300 West Donovan

September 23, 2010 - Charges have been filed against an armed suspect wounded by a Houston police officer in the 1300 block of West Donovan about 5:30 p.m. on Monday (Sept. 20). 

The suspect, Edward Tremayne Jamison (b/m, DOB: 1-6-76), is in custody and charged with four felonies in this incident: aggravated assault against a public servant, aggravated assault with a deadly weapon, felony evading and felon in possession of a weapon.  The charges are filed in the 178th State District Court.  A photo of Jamison is attached to this news release. 

Officer E. V. Athmejvar, who discharged his duty weapon, was not injured in the incident.  Officer Athmejvar, assigned to the North Patrol Division, was sworn in as an officer in January 2010. 

HPD Homicide Division Sergeant R. Torres and Senior Police Officer J. Johnston reported:  

A female, 26, was driving her vehicle in the 1300 block of West Donovan when the suspect (Jamison), also driving on West Donovan, turned and stopped his car, blocking the street.  The suspect got out of his vehicle, approached the female and pointed a pistol at her.  The female then fled the scene and called 9-1-1.  Patrol officers responded and, as they spoke to the female about the incident, the suspect returned to the scene in his vehicle.  Officers ordered the suspect to stop.  However, the suspect ignored the officers and attempted to run over Officer Athmejvar as he fled the scene.  Fearing for his safety and that of his fellow officers, Officer Athmejvar discharged his duty weapon several times and struck the suspect and his vehicle.  The suspect hit a parked car and then fled on foot.  

On Tuesday (Sept. 21), Jamison surrendered to investigators at Ben Taub General Hospital without incident.  He was treated and released for wounds he suffered in the incident.  Jamison was then questioned and admitted to his involvement in the above incidents.  

As is customary in HPD officer-involved shooting incidents in the city limits, this case will be investigated by the HPD Homicide and Internal Affairs Divisions and the Harris County District Attorney's Office.
