A suspect has been arrested and is facing charges for firing shots at Houston police officers at 4350 Aledo Street about 1:05 a.m. last Friday (March 12).
The suspect, an 11-year-old male, was referred to Harris County Juvenile Probation authorities on a charge of aggravated assault against a peace officer.
HPD Major Assaults & Family Violence Division Detectives F. Lee, Jr. and A. Graf II reported:
Officers responded to a report of discharging of firearms in the area of the above address. Upon arriving, officers observed a muzzle flash from an upstairs window of the residence at the above address and a bullet whiz by one of the patrol officers. Officers immediately sought cover and set up a perimeter.
