The victim, Harrison Schmidt, 18, was transported to an area hospital where he remains in critical condition.

Houston police say Schmidt was driving his vehicle, a Toyota Highlander, near 12200 Fondren Road when he got into an altercation with another male driving a black or gray four-door newer model Dodge Ram pickup truck. 

Once Schmidt stopped at a red light at Fondren and West Airport Boulevard, the Dodge pulled up next to him and the male inside the Dodge pulled out a pistol and pointed it at Schmidt, police say. 

Police say, as the light turned green, the suspect shot Schmidt in the head and sped away from the scene. Paramedics transported Schmidt to the hospital.  

Anyone with information on the identity of the wanted suspect or in this case is urged to contact the HPD Major Assaults & Family Violence Division at 713-308-8800 or Crime Stoppers at 713-222-TIPS.
