A killing, then a sprint to the border
A killing, then a sprint to the border

Marcus Tyrone Carter, 49, Bayou Body Count No. 130

A man was shot to death by his cousin in the Greenspoint area Friday night, and the suspect was later arrested near the Mexican border.

Marcus Tyrone Carter, 49, was shot several times in an apartment complex parking lot by his cousin Damon Lousieur Jacquot, 36, Houston police say. No motive was given for the shooting, which occurred about 8:30 Friday night in the 16900 block of Northchase Drive.

Carter, of Spring, was pronounced dead at a local hospital.

Jacquot then sped off "royal blue, four-door car, possibly a Toyota Camry," they say, and apparently headed for the border.

On Sunday, he tried to rob a convenience store in Del Rio and led police there on a chase until his arrest. HPD says he then "confessed to his role in Carter's death."

He is in the Val Verde County Jail pending extradition back here to face murder charges.
