HOUSTON – A suspect has been arrested and charged after police say he shot a man in a wheelchair multiple times in southwest Houston.

The suspect, 24-year-old Miguel Angel Nicanor Bartolo, has been charged with murder and felony evading arrest.

On Saturday, April 16, Houston police responded to reports of a shooting at a nightclub parking lot located at 6821 South Gessner Road.

Responding officers found 35-year-old David Fiscal shot multiple times. He was pronounced dead at the scene.

Investigators said Fiscal was sitting outside the club in his wheelchair having a conversation with someone when Bartolo approached him and started shooting.

On Wednesday, May 11, officers said they attempted to pull over a vehicle driven by Bartolo but he refused to stop, leading officers on a short chase.

Bartolo and a passenger were eventually arrested, and Bartolo was charged for his role in the shooting and chase.
