Update: Suspect Arrested, Charged in July 2015 Fatal Shooting at 403 South Loop West

August 2, 2021 - Charges have been filed against a suspect arrested in the fatal shooting of a man shot at 403 South Loop West (South Interstate Highway 610 West) about 2:30 a.m. July 4, 2015.  

The suspect, Tyderrian Deleon Duffield (b/m, 27), is charged with capital murder in the 263rd State District Court.  A booking photo of Duffield is attached to this news release.  

He is accused in the death of  Wesley Keene, 55.  

HPD Homicide Division Sergeants M. Burrow and R. Rodriguez reported:  

Mr. Keene was found deceased from a gunshot wound in the parking lot of a commercial warehouse at the above address.  A preliminary investigation determined Keene had been contracted by the company to work as a security guard while the business was closed during the holiday weekend.  Keene was found by a friend who went to check on him after receiving an inaudible voice message.  

The case was later reviewed by the HPD Homicide Division Cold Case Unit.  Further investigation and evidence collected identified Duffield, who was a serial burglary suspect in numerous overnight commercial warehouse burglaries around the state during the time of Keene's death.  

Duffield was taken into custody last Friday(July 30) while in court on an unrelated case and was charged for his involvement in Keene's death. 

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.
