HPD Major Assaults & Family Violence Division Detective A. Shaikh reported:
HPD patrol officers responded to a shooting at an apartment complex at the above address and learned Williams, the ex-boyfriend of a female tenant, broke a glass patio door and forced entry to her apartment, possibly to assault her. The woman retrieved her handgun and, in self-defense, shot Williams several times. Houston Fire Department paramedics transported Williams to the hospital.
Further investigation indicated there was a history of violence between the woman and Williams and a protective order was in place. The Harris County District Attorney’s Office was consulted and Williams was subsequently charged for his role in the incident.
