Charges have been filed against a suspect arrested in the fatal shooting of a man at 8524 Gulf Freeway (South Interstate Highway 45) service road about 3:45 a.m. on October 13.

The suspect, Jimmie Wayne Daniels, 21, is charged with capital murder in the 487th State District Court. A booking photo of Daniels is attached to this news release.

He is accused in the killing of Roberto Almaguer Garza, 29.

HPD Homicide Division Sergeant M. Wilson and Detectives M. Castillo, M. Nicotra and K. Clark reported:

HPD patrol officers responded to a shooting at a gas station at the above address and found Mr. Almaguer Garza suffering from multiple gunshot wounds.  Houston Fire Department paramedics responded to the scene and pronounced him deceased.

A preliminary investigation determined Almaguer Garza was the owner of a food truck and a male suspect attempted to rob him at gunpoint.  During the robbery, a scuffle ensued, during which Almaguer Garza was shot multiple times.  The suspect fled the scene on foot in an unknown direction.

Further investigation identified Daniels, who was already in custody for unrelated felony incidents, as the suspect. Today (October 26), he was charged for his role in this fatal shooting.
