Sanchez was taken from the Havencrest home in Providence via air ambulance to Memorial Hermann Hospital where at press time he remained in critical condition. No suspect information was released and no further details were available.
About 10 hours later, Sheriff’s deputies responded to another shooting, this time across Highway 6, a little to the south in the Townewest subdivision.
In this case, Carlson said deputies were sent to investigate a robbery at 6:37 pm. in the 10,000 block of Overview Drive in the Townewest of Fort Bend County.
Carlson said, in this case a 53 year old man who was accompanied by two young children, pulled up to a residence and was accosted by an gun toting man wearing a mask. During what Carlson described as a robbery, the 53 year old victim was shot in front of the children. The suspect was seen by several witnesses running from the scene. This suspect was described as a Black male wearing a Halloween mask and all black clothing.
The unidentified victim was transported to Sugar Land Methodist Hospital where he was pronounced dead.
