March 21, 2017 - The stabbings, one fatally, of two suspects at 8016 Meadowbrook Drive about 10:45 a.m. on Monday (March 20) will be referred to a Harris County grand jury.

A male was pronounced dead at the scene.  His identity is pending verification by the Harris County Institute of Forensic Sciences.  A female was transported to an area hospital in unknown condition.

HPD Homicide Division Senior Police Officers M. Perez and E. Aguilera reported:

HPD patrol officers responded to a report a female had been stabbed at 8003 Howard.  Upon arrival, they found her being treated by Houston Fire Department paramedics prior to being transported to an area hospital.  While at the scene, officers were notified of a second scene at the above address on Meadowbrook.  Officers arrived to find a male deceased in the apartment and the male and female residents being treated by HFD paramedics prior to also being transported to an area hospital with non life-threatening injuries.

According to the male resident, he heard someone banging on his door.  When he looked out his living room window, he saw the female suspect exiting a red sedan.  The male resident opened the door, whereupon both suspects forced their way inside and began to assault both residents.  During the assault, the male resident grabbed a kitchen knife and fought back, stabbing both suspects.  The male suspect died at the scene.  The female suspect fled to the Howard address.

The investigation is continuing.
