Houston police have arrested one male suspect and are seeking a second male charged in the fatal shooting of a man found at 4500 Richey Road about 10:30 a.m. on Dec. 13.

The wanted suspect, Anthony Johnson, also known as “Yolie” (b/m, DOB: 1-14-92), is charged with capital murder in the 230th State District Court.  A photo of Johnson is attached to this news release.

A second suspect, Rasheed Shelton (b/m, DOB: 2-18-94), is charged with tampering with evidence in the 182nd State District Court.  He is currently in the Harris County jail.  

The two males are wanted for their roles in the killing of Jawon Carson, 35, of Houston. 

HPD Homicide Division Sergeant T. Biggs and Senior Police Officer R. Bolton reported.

A witness found Mr. Carson under the bridge near the bayou at the above address.  The witness then notified another individual who called 911 and reported the incident.  HPD patrol officers responded and found Carson deceased.

Further investigation determined that on December 8, Carson was with a witness at his Houston home when he (Carson) went downstairs.  Moments later, the witness heard gunshots.  The witness ran to a balcony, but was unable to locate Carson.  The witness then called Carson’s family, who called 911.  Harris County Sheriff’s deputies responded and filed a missing person report.

Additional information led investigators to the vehicle used during the shooting and dumping of Carson’s body.  Witnesses then identified Johnson and Shelton as suspects in this case. 

Anyone with information on the whereabouts of Anthony Johnson (aka Yolie) is urged to contact the HPD Homicide Division at 713-308-3600
