HOUSTON Four Klein ISD campuses were put on lockdown for several hours Wednesday afternoon while police searched for a murder suspect in a nearby neighborhood.

The lockdowns started around 2 p.m. at Klein High, Kleb Intermediate, Mittelstadt Elementary and KISD Annex. The students were held at their schools until 4 p.m.

Police were searching for the suspect, Zumbotha Newsome, in the Wimbledon Estates subdivision.

Newsome is wanted in connection with the shooting death of Damien Goss on April 15, 2012.

Goss, 30, was stopped in the 1400 block of E. 34th Street, about to pull into a driveway, when police said a suspect in a Chevy Impala pulled up next to him and opened fire.

Goss was rushed to Memorial Hermann Hospital, where he was pronounced dead.

Police later identified Newsome as the suspect, and charges were filed against him on April 20.

After several hours of searching, police determined that Newsome had escaped their perimeter, and the lockdowns were lifted.
