Charges have been filed against two suspects arrested in the fatal shooting of a man and wounding of a juvenile male at 1400 Greens Parkway about 10:30 p.m. on March 19.
The suspects, Andrew Levy Griffin (b/m, 23) and David Terrel Resby (b/m, 26), are charged with murder in the 339th State District Court. They are accused in the killing of Dennis Davis, 26, who died at the scene. The other victim, Keenan Citizen 15, was transported to Ben Taub General Hospital in good condition.
HPD Homicide Division Sergeant T. Simmons, Senior Police Officer B. Evans and Officer L. Wright reported:
The juvenile male went into a convenience store and attempted to get change for a $20 bill. When the clerk was unable to do so, the juvenile left the store and asked a person in a group outside the store to break the bill. The money was taken from the juvenile, who then left the location and went to his residence.
Once at his residence, a family member of the juvenile contacted the juvenile’s cousin, the cousin’s brother and a third unknown male. The four males then went back to the convenience store in an attempt to determine who took the money from the juvenile. As the four males drove away from the convenience store, several shots were fired from a wooded median at Greens Parkway at Fall Lake. The vehicle was struck several times by the gunfire and two males inside the vehicle were struck.
Further investigation identified Griffin and Resby as suspects in this case and both were arrested without incident.
The investigation is continuing and anyone with additional information in this case is urged to contact the HPD Homicide Division at 713-308-3600.
