Investigation into Fatal Shooting at 17400 Saturn

June 23, 2015 - The fatal shooting of a male at 17400 Saturn about 6:20 p.m. on Monday (June 22) will be referred to a Harris County grand jury.

The identity of the deceased male, 48, is pending verification by the Harris County Institute of Forensic Sciences.

The male shooter, 27, was not injured in the incident.

HPD Homicide Division Officers M. Dykens, R. Nunez, J. Saldana and A. Vinogradov reported:

A male was following another male in their respective vehicles as they left work. The male pulled up alongside the suspect's vehicle at two different stop lights and threatened him both times. As the threatened male attempted to drive away from the other vehicle, the first male intentionally steered his vehicle into the path of the other man's vehicle and struck it. The male then got out of his vehicle and, as he approached the disabled vehicle, the male inside the vehicle pulled out a pistol and fatally shot the approaching male.
