HOUSTON – Houston police have charged a suspect wanted in connection to a deadly shooting in Midtown on July 31.
Jahdari Hatton, 24, is charged with murder and aggravated assault with a deadly weapon. He currently remains at large.
The shooting happened in the 2100 block of San Jacinto Street at about 2:55 p.m. on July 31.
Officers responded to a report of a shooting at a convenience store at the location and found a man suffering a gun shot wound. Paramedics from the Houston Fire Department transported the man, identified as Jonathan Pettway, 26, to Ben Taub General Hospital where he was pronounced dead.
A second man suffered a graze wound and was treated and released at the scene.
Investigators found that a fight happened inside of the store, which led to the suspect pulling out a gun and firing multiple rounds into the store.
Further investigation identified Hatton as the suspect in the case and on Thursday he was charged.
