HOUSTON – A man accused in the shooting of six people in the parking lot of the Tabú Club in west Houston in June has been arrested, the Houston Police Department said.

Carl Douglas Green, 32, was charged with three counts of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon in 209th State District Court.

Police said another suspect, Calvin Rashad Williams, 32, is charged with three counts of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon and one count of aggravated assault against a public servant in the 339th State District Court. He is not in custody, authorities said.

On June 11, officers working an extra job were flagged down near the 3100 block of Fountain View Drive by a witness requesting help for a shooting victim at 6003 Richmond Ave. around 2:20 a.m. Police said when they arrived at the lounge, they learned of additional victims.

According to investigators, the suspects shot five men - ages 29, 27, 27, 30 and 32 - and a 28-year-old woman - at the bar. A 27-year-old man also suffered minor injuries to the arm from broken glass, HPD said.

The shooting reportedly stemmed from an argument the suspects had with a man inside the establishment.

Officers said on June 21, Green was identified as a suspect and was subsequently charged in the shooting. At the time, investigators said the other suspect hadn’t been identified.

On June 26, detectives said they released surveillance video of Green and a person of interest, known only by the alias “Cabo.” The person of interest was identified by officers as Williams and he was charged last Thursday as the primary suspect in the shooting.

On August 21, detectives released booking photos of Green and Williams as wanted suspects in the case. On Wednesday, Green was taken into custody.

Anyone with information on Williams’ whereabouts is urged to contact the HPD Major Assaults and Family Violence Division at 713-308-8800 or speak anonymously with Crime Stoppers at 713-222-TIPS.
