Fatal Shooting at 13200 Pembroke

March 14, 2012 - Houston police are investigating the fatal shooting of a male at 13200 Pembroke about 12:30 a.m. today (March 14).

The victim, age unknown, suffered multiple gunshot wounds and was transported to Ben Taub General Hospital where he was pronounced dead.  His identity is pending verification by the Harris County Institute of Forensic Sciences.

HPD Homicide Division Sergeant A. Carrillo and Senior Police Officer X. Avila reported:

HPD patrol officers responded to a loud noise disturbance at a party at a residence in the 4400 block of Allison.  As officers and security guards attempted to disperse a large crowd, several gunshots were heard.  The victim was struck in the 13200 block of Pembroke near Allison.  He was then transported to the hospital where he died.  HPD patrol officers saw a male suspect with a gun and attempted to detain him.  The suspect fled the scene on foot and remains at large.

At this time, it has not been determined if the male pursued by officers is the suspect in this case, as it appears several people discharged weapons at the scene.

Anyone with information in this case is urged to contact the HPD Homicide Division at 713-308-3600 or Crime Stoppers at 713-222-TIPS.
