Wrecker Driver Shot During Car Repossession Attempt

Wrecker Driver Shot During Car Repossession Attempt: "HOUSTON - A grand jury will need to determine whether or not charges will be filed against a man who police say shot a tow truck driver who was repossessing his vehicle.

The shooting took place around 1:30 a.m. Friday at the SunBlossom at Woodlake apartment complex on South Gessner Road.

The tow truck driver had already hooked the reposessed vehicle onto the wrecker truck when police say he was shot once by the owner of the repossessed vehicle.

After the tow truck driver was shot, he drove away from the apartment complex to a nearby Exxon fuel station on South Gessner Road near Westheimer Road. He sought help once he arrived at the Exxon station.

When Houston police arrived to the Exxon station, the tow truck driver was taken to a hospital in stable condition.

The shooting suspect fled from the apartment complex but Houston police have identified him and knows where he lives, so homicide investigators say the case will be referred to a grand jury."
