Robbery suspect charged in connection with the fatal shooting of his partner | Texas

HOUSTON, Texas – A 17-year-old suspect has been charged in connection with a fatal shooting that occurred during an attempted robbery on Yellowstone Boulevard on May 12.

Zayveon Marshall, 17, of Houston, Texas, now faces a charge of aggravated robbery with a deadly weapon, according to filings in the 180th State District Court. Marshall was arrested without incident on May 24 by Houston Police Department (HPD) tactical team officers.

The deceased robbery suspect was identified as Aryeh White, 21, also of Houston. According to HPD’s Homicide Unit, a food delivery driver was confronted by White, who pointed a gun at him and demanded money. Fearing for his life, the delivery man pulled out a gun and fatally shot White.

The delivery remained on site and he provided a statement to responding officers. The Harris County District Attorney’s Office was contacted and it was determined that the shooting would be referred to a Harris County grand jury.

At the time of the incident, detectives were looking for a second male suspect who took the delivery man’s backpack while White held him at gunpoint. This suspect was only described as a black male wearing a white hoodie. Further investigation led to the identification of Marshall as the second suspect.

The Harris County District Attorney was contacted again and Marshall was subsequently charged for his role in the incident. The fatal shooting investigation will continue to be reviewed by a Harris County grand jury.
