Investigation into Fatal Shooting at 12302 Coulson Street

January 19, 2022 - Houston police are investigating the fatal shooting of a man and a woman at 12302 Coulson Street about 11:20 p.m. on Monday (January 17).  

The identities of the man, 20, and the woman, 18, are pending notification to family members by the Harris County Institute of Forensic Sciences.  

HPD Homicide Division Sergeant J. Horn and Detective J. Escobar reported:  

HPD patrol officers responded to a shooting in the parking lot of a school at the above address and found a man in the driver's seat of a red Chevrolet pickup truck.  He had been shot multiple times.  Houston Fire Department paramedics responded to the scene and pronounced the victim deceased.  

A preliminary investigation and evidence from the scene determined that prior to the shooting, a black Nissan Titan pickup truck appeared to be checking out the location.  A red, four-door sedan pulled into the parking lot of the school and approached the victim's pickup truck.  Three unknown suspects exited the sedan and fired multiple shots into the driver's side of the pickup truck and the victim was struck.  After the shooting, a female was escorted to the sedan and the vehicle fled the scene in an unknown direction.  Officers notified various hospitals and other patrol officers in the area to be on the lookout for the sedan and/or reports of a female who had been shot.  

Officers later learned that Harris County Sheriff's Office deputies responded to a shooting at 1500 Penn Circle Drive and found a female with at least one gunshot wound near a red sedan.  HFD paramedics responded to the scene and pronounced the female deceased.  Further investigation indicated the female may have been involved in the Coulson Street shooting incident.

The suspects are described as three Hispanic males.  One of them is 16 to 18 years of age, medium build and about 5 feet 7 inches tall.  The second suspect, known as "Chavez" or "Chaparo," is light-complected, 17 to 20 years of age and about 5 feet 5 inches tall with a medium build.  The third suspect, known as "Demonio" or "Pato," is dark-complected, 17 to 20 years of age, and about 5 feet 11 inches tall with a thin build.

Anyone with information in this case or on the identities of the wanted suspects is urged to contact the HPD Homicide Division at 713-308-3600 or speak anonymously to Crime Stoppers at 713-222-TIPS.
