Police say they have arrested a man suspected of fatally shooting another man at an area hotel earlier this month.
The Houston Police Department said 32-year-old Jamarcus Toliver has been charged with murder in the shooting death of 38-year-old Joseph Lewis. Toliver was arrested on April 20, according to HPD.
According to HPD, Lewis and Toliver were in a car together when they got into a confrontation in the parking lot of the Tropical Motel at 4831 N. Shepherd Dr. Police say Toliver allegedly fired multiple shots toward Lewis, hitting him as he sat in the passenger seat.
HPD said Toliver then allegedly pushed Lewis out of the car and drove away, allegedly running over him as he fled the scene. Lewis was pronounced dead at the scene, police said.
