February 24, 2015 - Houston police homicide investigators have released a composite sketch of a suspect wanted in the fatal shooting of a man at 8300 Twin Hills Drive about 7:30 p.m. on February 17 and believe the same suspect is responsible for other robbery/shooting incidents just hours later.
The suspect is described only as a light skinned black male of mixed race, possibly white or Hispanic, in his mid 30s with a stocky build. A composite sketch (provided by the Missouri City Police Department) of the suspect and a surveillance photo of the dark SUV he was driving are attached to this news release. The vehicle is believed to be a 1999 to 2003 Jeep Cherokee.
The victim, Pak Ho, 34, was transported to Ben Taub General Hospital where he was pronounced dead.
HPD Homicide Division Sergeant N. Ruland and Officer S. Spivey reported:
Mr. Ho was walking on Twin Oaks Drive when a black or dark-colored SUV, possibly a Jeep Cherokee, drove up. Someone from inside the SUV fired several shots. Ho was struck several times and the vehicle fled the scene. Witnesses in the area provided medical attention to Ho and then called 9-1-1. Ho was then taken to the hospital where he died.
Further investigation revealed the suspect is believed responsible for at least two other shooting incidents in the city limits just hours after the murder. In one incident, an adult male victim was walking in the 7900 block of Belbay Street about 10:30 p.m. on Feb. 17 when a suspect in a black SUV approached. Shots were fired from inside the SUV and the victim was struck one time in the buttocks. He managed to escape and the suspect fled in the vehicle. In the other incident, an adult male victim was at a bus stop in the 8500 block of Bissonnet about 1 a.m. on Feb. 18 when he was shot several times. The victim told officers he saw a dark SUV as shots were fired.
Missouri City police believe the suspect is involved in at least one such incident in their city.
Anyone with information on the suspect in these incidents is urged to contact the HPD Homicide Division at 713-308-3600 or Crime Stoppers at 713-222-TIPS to be eligible for a reward of up to $5,000 for information leading to the arrest of the suspect.
