Houston police say they are searching for a man suspected of shooting his ex-girlfriend at a Greater Inwood apartment complex last week.

The suspect, 21-year-old Jose Fernando Lopez Rauda, has been charged with aggravated assault of a family member in the shooting of 23-year-old Nolvia Santos Euseda, according to the Houston Police Department.

Rauda remains at large, HPD said, and Euseda was taken to an area hospital in stable condition.

Police said Rauda allegedly showed up to Euseda’s apartment at the Los Pinos Verdes Apartments at 5801 W. Sunforest Dr. around 8:20 p.m. July 9 and became upset that she had a male roommate. Euseda, with whom HPD said Rauda had previously dated, then asked Rauda to leave, according to police.

A short time later, police said Rauda came back and allegedly pulled Euseda into the bathroom and threatened to shoot her. Euseda’s father then attempted to get the gun away from Rauda, police said, before Rauda allegedly shot Euseda in the shoulder and fled the scene, according to HPD.

Anyone with information in this case or on the whereabouts of Rauda is urged to contact HPD’s Major Assaults & Family Violence division at 713-308-8800 or Crime Stoppers at 713-222-8477.
