Just another reminder of how life can change in an instant when poor decisions are made. An innocent man is fighting for his life and four young adults are charged in connection with his shooting. The victim was found begging for help in a crime-ridden southwest Houston apartment complex after being shot eight times, according to Houston police.
According to an article via khou.com:
Three men and one woman were taken into custody Sunday in connection with the robbery and carjacking of a cab driver, according to authorities.
Nicholas Paul Aker, Norris Briscoe and BrShai Kevin Peters were booked into the Bell County Jail Sunday on aggravated robbery charges.
A woman, Jasmine Monique Stelly, was also booked into the Bell County Jail, but her exact charges were not clear.
HPD said the independent cab driver picked up the suspects from the Greyhound bus station in downtown Houston on May 6.
The driver then drove the suspects to the Pines of Westbury apartments, located in the 12600 block of Dunlap at Fonmeadow, around 12:30 a.m.
After arriving at the complex, police said the suspects popped off multiple rounds at the suspect, took his van and wallet and left him to die.
The victim managed to give a woman who came to his aid a few details of the shooting before emergency crews arrived.
Hours after the shooting, a Crime Stoppers tip led Houston police to the driver’s minivan, which was abandoned in southwest Houston.
Investigators continued searching, which eventually led them to the suspects in Temple, Texas.
The cab driver was still listed in critical condition at Ben Taub Hospital Monday.
