June 11, 2005 -- Houston police have arrested and charged a juvenile suspect in the fatal shooting of a man at 10000 Bissonnet about 9:50 p.m. on Friday (June 10).

The identity of the deceased male victim, 55, has not been released at this time.

HPD Homicide Division Officers K. P. Carr and A. Mares reported:

Witnesses stated that the victim was walking through the Bissonnet Beltway Plaza when several teen-agers approached him. When the victim asked the teen-agers a question, one of the teens turned towards him fired at least four times. The victim, who was struck several times, managed to walk to a nearby restaurant where he collapsed. He was transported by ambulance to Memorial Hermann Hospital where he later died.

Witnesses observed the suspect and the other teen-agers fled into a nearby apartment. Officers obtained the consent to search that apartment. Once inside, they found the suspect and several firearms, including the one possibly used in this incident.
