HOUSTON – A second suspect is now in custody for his role in a 2018 shooting that left an adult man dead outside a southeast Houston H-E-B parking lot, police said.
Johntiz Robertson, 23, is charged with capital murder overnight Saturday, according to the Harris County District Clerk’s Office.
Another suspect, Reginald Hawkins, who was also charged with capital murder, was arrested in June 2018. Both suspects are accused of the shooting death of 75-year-old That Huu Le.
On Jan. 20, Robertson and Hawkins followed That Huu Le, 75, to the H-E-B parking lot in the 9800 block of Blackhawk Boulevard. Surveillance video showed a gold Infinity sedan following a white Lexus SUV into the parking lot. The video then shows a man getting out of the Infinity and walking toward the victim’s SUV.
Police said a short scuffle took place between the men and Le before shots were fired, hitting Le multiple times.
According to HPD, Hawkins was in custody on an unrelated charge.
Le was transported to an area hospital where he later died.
Investigators believe the attack was random.
According to court documents, Robertson was previously arrested for aggravated assault, theft and retaliation between 2017 and 2020.
