Derrick Williams: Man Who Allegedly Shot Man in Wheelchair Turns Himself in

A man who sheriff's deputies say shot a man in a wheelchair from his car has turned himself in, the Harris County Sheriff's Office says.

The HCSO says Derrick Williams, 24, stopped his Buick Roadmaster in the 400 block of Cypress Avenue Friday in far northwest Harris County and began talking to a man in a wheelchair.

He then fired at him, deputies say. The victim was taken to the hospital and later died. A bystander was also hit.

Williams currently faces two charges of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon, but the DA's office can upgrade to murder if they choose.

HCSO spokesperson Christina Garza said the name of the male victim has not been released. (Update: He's been identified as Corey Wayne Comeaux, 30.) The bystander who was hit, Fannie Washington, 35, is expected to recover.
