September 11, 2020 - Charges have been filed against a second suspect arrested in the fatal shooting of one man and the wounding of another at 9202 Nathaniel Street about 7 p.m. on January 30, 2020.  

The suspect, Kevin Dewayne Thompson (b/m, 35), is charged with capital murder in the 209th State District Court.  A May 2020 booking photo of Thompson is attached to this news release.

The other suspect, Henry McZeal McCoy (b/m, 35), is charged with capital murder in the 351st State District Court.  A booking photo of McCoy was released on August 6 and is attached to this news release.   

Both males are accused in the death of  Pedro Ontiveros, 23.  

HPD Homicide Division Officers D. Higgs and J. Caten reported:

Officers responded to a shooting at a convenience store at the above address and found Mr. Ontiveros sitting inside a vehicle in the parking lot.  Paramedics pronounced him deceased.  Another male victim was transported to an area hospital with a gunshot wound to the leg. 

At that time, the suspects were described only as two black males in their 20s.  

Further investigation identified McCoy as one of the suspects.  He was taken into custody on August 6 without incident.  A second unidentified suspect remained at large.

The investigation then revealed Thompson as the wanted suspect in the case.  He was charged on Wednesday (Sept. 9) and was already in the Harris County Jail on another charge.
