HOUSTON – A third suspect has been charged in a shooting that killed one man and injured another in June, according to the Houston Police Department.

Two other suspects, 18-year-old Johnathan Rashon Carter and 20-year-old Damon W. Steber, are currently in custody and charged with capital murder in connection to the double shooting.

On June 15, Houston police responded to reports of a shooting at 12931 Nyack Drive and found two men shot.

Police said 18-year-old Jorge Jaimes and 18-year-old Julian Becerra were meeting with two other men, but while they were talking, another man approached them and all three men pulled out guns on Jaimes and Becerra while attempting to rob them.
