A man was shot during a carjacking of his car at the West Bellfort apartment complex Saturday evening around 10:26.
Sheriff’s deputies responded to a gunshot call in the 14400 block of W. Bellfort. When officers arrived they found a man suffering from a gunshot wound to the chest. Northeast Fire Department responded to provide medical assistance and the victim was transported by LifeFlight to Memorial Hermann Hospital – in the Medical Center. At last report the victim was critical but stable.
The ensuing investigation revealed that four subjects, described as young black males, accosted the victim and wanted his wallet and vehicle, said sheriff’s spokesman Bob Haenel. Surveillance video provided detectives with a possible license plate on what was believed to be the suspect vehicle. That car was later determined to have been stolen out of Harris County Precinct 5.
Anyone with information on the incident is asked to call the Fort Bend County Sheriff’s Office at 281-341-4665.
