Charges have been filed against a suspect arrested in the shooting of a man at 4919 Main Street about 11:50 a.m. on Thursday (September 16).
The suspect, Angelo Jordan (b/m, 22), is charged with aggravated assault with a deadly weapon in the 184th State District Court. A booking photo of Jordan is attached to this news release.
The victim, Darren Jackson, 48, suffered multiple gunshot wounds and was transported to an area hospital in stable condition.
HPD Major Assaults & Family Violence Division Detectives A. Don and J. De La Torre reported:
Officers responded to a report of a shooting in a convenience store parking lot at the above address and were advised that Mr. Jackson had suffered non life-threatening injuries and had been transported to the hospital in stable condition.
Further investigation determined that Jordan and Jackson had an argument inside the store, which continued into the parking lot. As the verbal altercation escalated, Jordan pulled out a firearm and shot Jackson several times. Jordan remained at the scene and was arrested without incident.
At this time, the department does not believe there is a continuous threat to the general public.
