Martel was a parking attendant for a bar at the above address. Mr. Stanley became upset when Martel gave a parking space to another patron. Stanley got out of his vehicle and began to argue with and, according to witnesses, threaten Martel. At that time, Martel shot Stanley one time in the abdomen before fleeing in a vehicle.
While fleeing, Martel threw the weapon to an unknown location along the 610 Loop (Interstate Highway 610). He eventually returned to the shooting scene to surrender to officers.
Anyone with additional information on this case is urged to contact the HPD Major Assaults & Family Violence Division at 713-308-3600.
