Update on Incident at 8600 South Course

June 8, 2005 -- A suspect has been charged in the fatal shooting of a man at 8600 South Course about 12:45 a.m. on Wednesday, May 25, 2005.

The suspect, Carlos Aldair Leiba Fugon (H/m DOB: 1-9-79), has been arrested and charged with murder in the 337th State District Court. Samuel Bonilla, 21, of 3026 Roe suffered a gunshot wound to the upper right chest and was transported to Memorial Hermann Southwest Hospital where he was pronounced dead.

HPD Homicide Division Sergeant C. W. Howard and Officers P. T. Yochum and J. Selvera reported:

Mr. Bonilla, his wife and brother arrived at the apartment complex at 8600 South Course and were waiting outside of the security gate because they had forgotten their gate access card. Their intent was to wait until another vehicle, with an access card, arrived and follow that vehicle into the complex.

According to witnesses, a newer model gray four-door vehicle with dark tinted windows pulled into the driveway of the complex. Bonilla approached the vehicle and asked the occupants if they had a gate access card and if they were planning to enter the complex. Fugon got out of the vehicle and grabbed a shotgun. After a brief struggle over the weapon, Fugon shot Bonilla in the chest and fled the scene in the gray vehicle.
