Investigation into Fatal Shooting at 4934 Laura Koppe Road

May 9, 2022 - Houston police are investigating the fatal shooting of two men at 4934 Laura Koppe Road about 4:40 a.m. last Friday (May 6).  

The deceased men are identified as Anthony Craig Galentine, 60, and Joshay Craig Baldwin, 40.  

HPD Homicide Division Detectives W. Huff and J. Nguyen reported:  

HPD patrol officers responded to a shooting at a game room/bar at the above address and found one man unresponsive and sitting in the driver's side of a white Mercedes Benz in the parking lot.  Houston Fire Department paramedics pronounced the man deceased.  

Officers entered the business and found another man on the floor by the entry door.  He had also suffered gunshot wounds.  Paramedics transported the man to Ben Taub General Hospital where he was pronounced deceased. 

A preliminary investigation determined the men, who knew each other and were regular customers at local gaming locations, got into an argument at another location a short time earlier.  The men eventually met up again at the above address and, after a verbal exchange, both men produced weapons and fatally shot each other.  

Anyone with additional information in this case is urged to contact the HPD Homicide Division at 713-308-3600.
