Investigation into Fatal Shooting at 9500 Homestead Road

The fatal shooting of a man at 9500 Homestead Road about 1:45 p.m. on Sunday (June 28) will be referred to a Harris County grand jury.  

The identity of the deceased male, 23, is pending verification by the Harris County Institute of Forensic Sciences.  

The male shooter was not injured.  

HPD Homicide Division Detectives N. Sharp and K. Fregia reported:  

The victim was traveling southbound near the above address when a vehicle apparently cut him off in the roadway.  According to witnesses, the victim exited his vehicle at the intersection of Homestead and Tidwell Road and confronted the person in the other vehicle. 

The victim reached into his vehicle and retrieved a firearm.  At that time, the driver of the other vehicle feared for his life and shot the victim.  He then called 9-1-1 and alerted a responding HPD patrol officer to the incident.

Detectives questioned the shooter and advised the incident would be referred to a grand jury.
