In an earnest plea to the public, Houston's top cop, alongside FBI officials, called for help in the unsolved case of a young child tragically cut down by a shooter's bullet. Houston Police Chief Troy Finner, in a news conference held in the echo-filled HPD Edward A. Thomas Building, was flanked by FBI Acting Special Agent in Charge Mark Whalen as they revisited the harrowing incident.

The ill-fated occurrence in the North Houston community claimed the life of a 5-year-old girl and inflicted grave injuries on an 8-year-old boy. The HPD headquarters, usually a cavern of law enforcement activity, stood on November 28th as a solemn testament, housing a gathering of souls seeking information about the savage act of violence that took place in the early morning hours of July 3, 2022, at 13350 Northborough Drive.

Chief Finner, in a direct address punctuated by palpable frustration, summoned citizens to step forward with any shred of intelligence that might lead to the capture of those responsible. The Houston Police Department stated that additional information is critical to progressing the stagnant investigation into this senseless crime.

The news conference, to be attended by family members of the victims, will be held in the 22nd-floor conference room at the HPD Edward A. Thomas Building at 1200 Travis.  The law enforcement officials and the families of the fallen stood united in their appeal, detailing the harrowing account of events that unfolded over a year ago.
