Authorities are asking for the public's assistance in identifying a suspect wanted in the fatal shooting of a male and wounding of a female in northwest Houston earlier this month. A witness took pictures of the unknown wanted suspect who is described only as a black or Hispanic male with long hair, about 5 feet 9 inches tall and 160 to 180 pounds.

The suspect is wanted in the killing of Justin Thompson, 19, and wounding of a 52-year-old female. The female suffered non life-threatening wounds and was transported to an area hospital.

Police say the unknown suspect and Thompson (the second suspect) went to a residence at 3341 Creekmont about 2:30pm on October 10 to meet with the female to conduct a drug transaction. When Thompson and the female were inside the residence, the suspect fired shots into the home, striking Thompson and the female. The suspect then fled the scene.

Robbery is believed to be the motive in the shooting.

Anyone with information in this case or the identity of the suspect is urged to contact the HPD Homicide Division at 713-308-3600 or Crime Stoppers at 713-222-TIPS.
