Investigation into Shooting at 9001 Denton Street

July 18, 2019 - Houston police are investigating the shooting of a man at 9001 Denton Street about 7:30 p.m. on Wednesday (July 17).  

The victim, Torious Williams, 19, was transported to Ben Taub General Hospital with a gunshot wound to the left leg.  

HPD Major Assaults & Family Violence Division Officer K. Saulsberry reported:  

Mr. Williams and a male suspect got into an argument that escalated into a physical altercation.  As Williams was knocked to the ground, a second male suspect pulled out a gun and shot him once in the leg. 

A nearby witness confronted the suspect and took the gun to prevent him from shooting Williams again.  The suspect then retrieved a second weapon from his vehicle, pointed it at the witness and demanded his gun back.  Once the witness returned his weapon, both suspects got into a vehicle, described as a blue Nissan sedan.and fled the scene in an unknown direction.  The witness then called 9-1-1.  

Anyone with information in this case is urged to contact the HPD Major Assaults & Family Violence Division at 713-308-8800 or Crime Stoppers at 713-222-TIPS.
