October 28, 2015 - Houston police are asking for the public's help in identifying a suspect wanted in the fatal shooting of a man at 2751 Wallingford about 12:40 a.m..  

The suspect is described only as an unknown black male.  Surveillance video of the suspect can be viewed on the HPD YouTube channel at https://youtu.be/N0p4-keJDKo.  Surveillance photos of the suspect are attached to this news release.  

The victim, Patrick Terelle Thompson, 27, was transported to Ben Taub General Hospital where he was pronounced dead.  

HPD Homicide Division Sergeant K. Tolls and Senior Police Officer R. Cervantes reported:  

Mr. Thompson went to visit a female friend's apartment at the above address and left the apartment about 11 p.m.  A few minutes later, the female was told by a neighbor that Thompson had been shot.  

A preliminary investigation determined Thompson was alone and behind the wheel of the vehicle he was driving when he was shot. Thompson then lost control of the vehicle and it continued moving a short distance until it struck a parked car.  Thompson was then transported by HFD paramedics to the hospital.  

Anyone with information on the identity of the suspect in the surveillance video is urged to contact the HPD Homicide Division at 713-308-3600 or Crime Stoppers at 713-222-TIPS.
