Investigation into Fatal Shooting at 7003 McHard Road
News Release
Thursday, July 05, 2018

Houston police are investigating the fatal shooting of a man at 7003 McHard Road about 9:35 p.m. on Tuesday (July 3).

The victim, Jose Fidel Gomez, 63, was pronounced dead at the scene.

HPD Homicide Division Sergeants M. Miller and S. Murdock reported:

Two unknown suspects wearing gloves and hoods approached the front door of the convenience store at the above address.  One suspect entered the store while the other held the door open and acted as a lookout.  The first suspect pulled a gun and demanded money from the store clerk.  Before the clerk could comply with the robber, one of his co-workers, Mr. Gomez, pulled out a gun.  At that time, the suspect and Gomez fired one shot at each another.  Gomez was fatally struck and both suspects then fled the scene on foot into the neighborhood behind the store.

Anyone with information on the suspects in this case is urged to contact the HPD Homicide Division at 713-308-3600 or Crime Stoppers at 713-222-TIPS.
