Houston Police charge shooting suspect
Houston Police have charged a suspect regarding a shooting at 6400 Carver.
According to a police report, Derwin Gerhard Haynes faces charges of aggravated assault on a police officer, felony evading in a motor vehicle and failure to stop and give information.
Haynes allegedly fired a shot at a Metro Transit Authority police officer R. Smith at approximately 12:45 a.m. on June 3.
According to a report by HPD Homicide Division Sgt. T. Simmons and Officer J. Horn, Smith saw Haynes commit several traffic violations and the officer attempted to conduct a traffic stop. Haynes refused to stop his vehicle and led the officer on a pursuit.
While in the 6400 block of Carver, Haynes lost control of the vehicle and crashed into a ditch. The Metro officer ordered Haynes out of the vehicle. Haynes ignored the commands and started to crawl out the passenger-side window. At that time, Haynes allegedly fired a shot at the officer, who then discharged his weapon. Haynes then fled on foot and was eventually located hiding in the 2400 block of Dalview after an extensive search by backup officers and K-9 units, according to the report.
Neither were injured in the incident.
