Unidentified Male Killed Over Stolen Rims, 22, Bayou Body Count No. 27
Tire-rim theft leads to death.
A man whose tire rims were stolen confronted the man who did it and ended up dead, police say.
HPD says the 22-year-old man, whose name has not been released, had his tire rims stolen Sunday by Demontrion Terrell Albert, 24.
"Investigators determined Albert stole the male's car earlier in the day for its rims," HPD says. "The male found out where Albert lived and went to his home to confront him. The two shot each other in the backyard of the residence."
The incident happened about 9:10 p.m. Sunday in the 12200 block of Roandale. Albert was taken to Ben Taub, where he is being treated for non-life-threatening injuries.
"The investigation is pending consultation with the Harris County District Attorney's Office to determine whether charges will be filed in the incident," HPD says.
