|Houston police have arrested two suspects in the fatal shooting of one man and the wounding of another at 4715 Westheimer Road about 5:15 p.m. on August 21.
The suspects, Frederick Dwayne Jackson (b/m, 19) and Anthony Rayshard Jenkins (b/m, 21), are being charged today with capital murder. Their booking photos are attached to this news release.
The two are accused for their roles in the fatal shooting of off-duty New Orleans Police Detective Everett Briscoe, 41, and the shooting of Dyrin Riculfy, 43, who remains hospitalized in critical condition.
HPD Homicide Division Sergeant J. Stroble and Detectives R. Waterwall, L. Osborn and A. Bock reported:
Off-duty Officer Briscoe and his friend, Mr. Riculfy, were dining on the patio of the restaurant at the above address when two black male suspects wearing hoodies approached them and attempted to rob the men. One or more of the suspects then fired at the victims, striking both of them. The suspects fled the scene in a gray Nissan Altima. Paramedics transported both victims to an area hospital, where Officer Briscoe was pronounced deceased.
Further investigation led to the identities of Jackson and Jenkins as suspects in this case. Jenkins was taken into custody on Wednesday (Aug. 25) and Jackson was arrested on Thursday (Aug. 26). Detectives believe there is a third male who has knowledge of the incident. The male is considered a person of interest and is being sought for questioning. His identity is not being released at this time.
