Charges have been filed against a suspect arrested in the fatal shooting of a man at 4811 Bellfort Street about 9:25 p.m. on Tuesday (Nov. 28).

The suspect, Jimmy Jimal Bergeron, 58, is charged with murder in the 482nd State District Court.  A booking photo of Bergeron is attached to this news release.

The identity of the victim, 39, is pending verification by the Harris County Institute of Forensic Sciences.

HPD Homicide Division Detectives D. Lunceford and D. Davis reported:

HPD patrol officers responded to a shooting call in a convenience store at the above address and found the victim suffering from an apparent gunshot wound. Houston Fire Department paramedics pronounced the man deceased at the scene.

Further investigation developed a suspect and, on Wednesday (Nov. 29), surveillance photos of the unknown wanted suspect were released to the public.

Later that same day, Bergeron turned himself in to police at the HPD Southeast Patrol Station without incident.  Bergeron told HPD homicide detectives he surrendered after learning that photos of him were disseminated in social media and media outlets.  During the interview, Bergeron admitted to his role in the shooting.  He was subsequently charged and booked into the Harris County Jail.
