Investigation into Incident at 10200 Valencia Drive
December 13, 2021 - Houston police are investigating the shooting of an armed suspect who fired shots at HPD officers at 10200 Valencia Drive about 2 p.m. last Friday (December 10).
The suspect, Marc Anthony Limon (H/m, 26), was transported to an area hospital in stable condition. Limon is charged with two counts of aggravated assault of a police officer in the 482nd State District Court. A July 2021 booking photo of Limon is attached to this news release.
HPD Officers C. Casarez, D. Garcia and D. Gil, who discharged their duty weapons, were not injured. Officers Casarez, Garcia and Gil are assigned to the Northeast Patrol Division and were sworn in as officers in November 2020, May 2021, and July 2006, respectively.
HPD Special Investigations Unit Sergeant J. Hekimian and Detectives N. Alvarado, T. Vaca, V. Praxedes, A. Flores and J. Kosler reported:
HPD patrol officers responded to a family disturbance call at a residence at the above address. The suspect was no longer on scene when officers arrived, but officers were given a description of him and the vehicle he was driving. While conducting the investigation, one of the officers saw the suspect, later identified as Limon, at a distance driving by. Officers caught up to Limon and attempted to conduct a traffic stop. The suspect refused to stop and fled from officers. Officers initiated a vehicle pursuit.
Limon drove back to the scene of the disturbance, exited his vehicle armed with a shotgun and fired several rounds at the officers. Fearing for their lives, Officers Casarez, Garcia and Gil returned fire and Limon was struck. Houston Fire Department paramedics responded to the scene and transported Limon to the hospital.
The Harris County District Attorney's Office was consulted and Limon was subsequently charged for his role in the incident.
As is customary in officer-involved shooting incidents in the Houston city limits, this case is being investigated by the HPD Special Investigations Unit, the Internal Affairs Division and the Harris County District Attorney's Office.
