HOUSTON, Texas (KTRK) -- Charges have been filed against a suspect arrested late Tuesday in the shooting of a man on Westheimer Road last Saturday.

Police say the suspect fled the scene before officers arrived. Further investigation led to the identification and charging of Henderson.

There is no known motive in this case.
