Residential surveillance footage captured a deadly shooting in Midtown

HOUSTON, Texas (KTRK) -- Ramon Reyes moved to Midtown Houston in 2018 but said he's never seen anything like the deadly shooting his home security camera captured on Friday night.

"It's just amazing that it happened so close to my house," said Reyes. "I had my daughter, and she was panicking."

The shooting took place at 1300 Hadley Street around 9:10 p.m. on Feb. 18. It was the second shooting in the area that night. The first shooting, which happened at 1300 Webster Street, sent a man in his 40s to the hospital in critical but stable condition.

The victim who died on Hadley Street was described as a male in his 50s but has not been identified, according to HPD.

Police believe the same suspect is responsible for both shootings categorized as attempted robberies.

"I thought (the shooter and the victim) were friends or something," said Reyes. "They were talking, and the next thing I hear is the shot."

In addition to the two shootings on Friday, data shows the half-mile radius around Reyes' house has also seen instances of sexual assault, aggravated assault, and theft of a motor vehicle over the past week.
