Houston officers have arrested one of at least six adolescents and he is behind bars for connection to a fatal shooting in the north Houston area where an older man with a cane was murdered.
According to Fox 26 News, the Houston Police Department communicated a tweet on Twitter Wednesday that Isaiah "Isaac" Henry, 18, was apprehended for his participation as the gunman in the murder of Anthony Green, 49.
Anthony Green was fatally shot on Monday, May 9th on the back-end side of the Walmart on Fulton and Crosstimbers, slightly before 8:45 p.m. Authorities were called to the scene of the shooting, where they state Green allegedly got into an altercation with six young teens: two of whom were males and the other reportedly are said to be four females.
Officers are said to have reported the teens were heckling Green and as that was transpiring, Green was swinging his cane in defense attempting to get the youngsters away from him.
As the pack of teenagers began strolling away, one of the men, whom officers identified as Henry, circled and shot Green in the chest. Officers say the teenagers then ran toward a bus stop before the police came and paramedics rushed Green to Memorial Hermann – Texas Medical Center, where he later died from his wounds.
SWAT officers located Henry at an establishment on Tuesday and when he was approached, a brief foot pursuit followed. He was subsequently taken into custody without incident and officers say a loaded handgun was uncovered in his possession.
According to Fox 26 News allegedly that the other five suspects have been recognized, but officials have not released their identities as no charges have been filed against them at this time, but an investigation stays underway.
