Houston police have arrested a man accused of fatally shooting his father and injuring another woman in Greater Inwood last weekend.

Larry A. Britton Jr., 37, has been charged with murder and aggravated assault of a family member in connection with the shootings of 69-year-old Larry Britton Sr. and 40-year-old Joanne Rosas, according to Harris County court records.

The elder Britton was pronounced dead at the scene, according to the Houston Police Department, while Rosas was taken to a hospital in critical condition.

HPD said officers responded to 10135 Inwood Hollow Ln. around 4:30 a.m. Aug. 7 to find Britton Sr. laying in the roadway with multiple gunshot wounds. Rosas, police said, was found inside the home with gunshot wounds to her head and torso.

Further investigation identified the younger Britton as a suspect, police said. He was already being held in jail on unrelated charges of harassing a public servant and assaulting a peace officer, according to court records.
