Two suspects charged in home burglary, deputy-involved shooting in west Harris Co.


Jacob Trevino, 19, is charged with aggravated assault of a public servant and burglary. He is in Harris County Jail on bonds totaling $40,000. He is due in court on December 3. Paul Joseph, 44, is charged with burglary of a habitation.

Sheriff's deputies say a silent burglar alarm that led the burglary in progress at a house in west Harris County, and when they arrived officials say they found two suspects leaving the home. Trevino was armed.

"At that time deputies ordered the suspect to drop his weapon. He did not," said Deputy Thomas Gilliland with the Harris County Sheriff's Office. "The deputy discharged his weapon, striking the suspect one time in the upper thigh."

Authorities say Joseph then ran and barricaded himself inside the house. Deputies called for a SWAT team and negotiators. About an hour later, Joseph surrendered and was arrested.

Trevino was transported to the hospital.
