“She called 911 and said that she discovered an 18-year-old male, the victim, in bed with her juvenile daughter. She notified her nephew, who was at the residence, who apparently got into a gunfight with the victim,” Beall said.
Mobley sustained multiple gunshot wounds. He was transported to Houston Northwest Medical Center, where he was pronounced dead.
The nephew, 20-year-old Daniel Hines, was not injured. He was taken to the HCSO Homicide Unit for questioning and was later charged.
Beall said 14 to 15 shell casings were found at the scene. There were also numerous bullet strikes through the front of the house and on the pavement. A neighbor’s house was also struck by gunfire.
When asked how confident they were in the story they were told, Beall said, “we are not confident at all.”
“The male that was in the juvenile daughter’s bedroom, he was armed with a pistol,” Beall said. “The 18-year-old nephew, he was armed with a pistol so, at this point, we are going to have to get a story from him and he is going to have to raise the issue of self-defense.”
