Officers said Green got into a physical altercation with two boys between the ages of 16 and 18 and four teenage girls ages 14 to 16.

Police said Green was swinging his cane trying to get the kids away from him, but as the group started walking away, Henry allegedly turned around and shot Green in the chest.

Green was transported to Memorial Hermann hospital where he was pronounced dead.

On Tuesday, HPD located Henry and attempted to approach him, but he ran on foot. A short time later, Henry was arrested without incident.

Officers said they found a loaded pistol in his possession.

The five other suspects have also been identified but no charges have been filed against them at this time, police said.
