New evidence released in shooting of League City couple confronting car burglar


In one of the incidents, a woman saw a man breaking into her husband's truck on Meade Court in the Ellis Landing subdivision. He followed her outside to do something about it and that's when the burglar turned violent, shooting both the man and woman just feet from the front door of their home.

Police say as the gunman was running from the scene of Monday's shooting, one of his shoes fell off. The shoe -- a black and white Adidas AdiZero Crazy Light basketball shoe men's size 11 -- is currently being processed for DNA evidence and fingerprints.

There were four other burglary of motor vehicles which occurred in the same area -- two in Ellis Landing and two in the Clear Creek Village subdivision -- at around the same time, just prior to the shooting incident on December 26. The Clear Creek Village subdivision is located just north of FM 518 from Ellis Landing.

Information obtained from witnesses confirms these crimes were most likely committed by the same suspect(s) due to the similarities of the vehicle and suspect description.

Witnesses to the other crimes described both hearing and seeing a small sports car with a loud exhaust. It is now believed there were at least two persons involved, as witnesses described one person driving the vehicle and one person getting in and out breaking into cars.

If anyone has information relating to this case please call Galveston County Crime Stoppers at (409) 763-TIPS (8477) or the League City Police Department at 281-554-1802.
