HPD Major Assaults and Family Violence Division Sergeant V. Garcia and Detective I. Rios-Hernandez reported:

On March 21, HPD patrol officers were dispatched to an alarm at a business at 7205 Bellerive Drive. Officers found the victim (27 year-old male) suffering from a gunshot wound inside the business. They later learned the male was inside his vehicle in the parking lot of the business with an acquaintance in the front passenger seat when an unknown male (suspect) entered the back seat. The victim confronted the suspect who fired a shot. The victim exited the vehicle and went inside the business to ask for help. The suspect and acquaintance fled the scene in the victim's vehicle.

Houston Fire Department paramedics transported him to an area hospital in critical condition. He has since been discharged.

On April 30, HPD patrol officers responded to a shooting call at 7203 Bellerive Drive. They learned a suspect discharged a firearm multiple times in the parking lot of a business. One male, 47, was grazed by a bullet.

Further investigation identified Peoples as the suspect in both incidents. Members of the HPD Midwest Crime Suppression Team arrested Peoples on Monday (May1) and he was subsequently charged for his role in both incidents.
