NEW ORLEANS (WGNO) — The man accused of fatally shooting a New Orleans restaurant worker and wounding a tourist has now reportedly been linked to a homicide investigation in Houston, Texas.
According to the Harris County District Court, 22-year-old Kyron Keith Fazande is now suspected of shooting and killing a 15-year-old boy on May 6, just two days before being taken into custody for the shooting death of 23-year-old Hilbert Walker III.
Investigators said on that Saturday at about 11:30 a.m., an argument between Fazande and the victim outside of an apartment complex is what reportedly led to the shooting. Responding officers found the unresponsive male juvenile lying on the sidewalk suffering from a gunshot wound.
Houston Fire Department paramedics pronounced the victim dead on the scene. Evidence left at the location, along with witness statements, was enough for detectives to identify Fazande as the wanted subject.
On April 28, the NOPD responded to a shooting in the 3800 block of Canal Street at about 8:20 p.m. where they found Walker shot to death and a 54-year-old woman dining inside, wounded.
Surveillance cameras allegedly captured Fazande in the area and detectives were able to identify him as a suspect.
Fazande was booked into the Fort Bend County Jail where he faces charges of murder in both Houston and New Orleans.
