Good Samaritan holds shooting suspect until police arrive

A Good Samaritan came to a wounded cab driver’s aid Wednesday evening, holding the driver’s suspected shooter until Houston police arrived.

The shooter approached the cab driver around 8:45 p.m., in the parking lot of a northeast Houston shopping center, near the intersection of Tidwell and Mesa, said Norman Wallace with the Houston Police Department robbery division.

He pulled out a gun and shot him. A nearby witness saw the commotion. He ran over, grabbed the shooter and held him until Houston police arrived, Wallace said.

The driver was not seriously injured or taken to the hospital. The bullet grazed his stomach.

The shooter was arrested.

It was not immediately clear why the shooter fired, Wallace said. The shooter was not a passenger in the driver’s cab. It did not appear the shooter had been demanding money from the driver.
