The victims, Bradley Barker, 25, and Binel Gasery, 33, were pronounced dead at the scene by Houston Fire Department paramedics.
HPD Homicide Division Detectives K. Clark, J. Pickett and L. Lange reported:
Officers were dispatched to a shooting call on the outbound (eastbound) lanes of the freeway at the above address and found both Mr. Barker and Mr. Gasery fatally shot inside a silver Nissan Sentra.
Witnesses reported seeing a newer model black sedan stop in the middle of the freeway and an armed Hispanic male exit the front passenger door. The suspect walked toward the victims’ Nissan and began firing, striking both Barker and Gasery. The suspect then ran back to the waiting sedan and fled.
Further investigation led to the identification of Aleman, Hernandez and Casaya as suspects in this case and they were charged for their roles in the shooting. Suspects Aleman and Hernandez were subsequently taken into custody.
