Shooting (Update)

haltom city police department james reevesOn Monday, March 16, 2020, at approximately 3:30 a.m., Haltom City officers responded to the 5300 block of Ira Street North, in reference to a shooting. Upon arrival, officers located a 12 year old female in a bathroom in the house that had sustained a gunshot wound to her back. As officers were tending to her wounds, other officers discovered that the person who had fired the weapon had left the scene. Witnesses told officers that the person that fired the weapon was in an adjacent bedroom when he fired a handgun into the closet of the bedroom. The projectile went through the closet wall and into the bathroom where the female was located. Haltom City Fire Department and MedStar Ambulance personnel arrived on scene to treat the victim, and she was transported to Cook Children’s Hospital in serious condition.

Detectives had been in contact with the suspect and were attempting to get him to voluntarily come to the police department to speak with them. The suspect and victim’s older brother, James David Reeves, 20 years of age, did not come to the police department to speak with detectives, so on Tuesday, March 17, 2020, warrants were issued for his arrest. Once arrested, he faces charges of Reckless Injury to a Child, $30,000 bond, Tampering with Physical Evidence with Intent to Impair Investigations, $15,000 bond, and Possession of a Controlled Substance Penalty Group 2, 4 – 400 grams, $30,000 bond.

MEDIA ADVISORY/NEWS RELEASE

On Saturday, December 28, 2019, at approximately 11:59 p.m., Haltom City officers attempted to stop a black 2005 Cadillac STS they believed to be driven by an impaired driver. The vehicle was eastbound in the 4800 block of NE 28th Street. The vehicle continued eastbound on NE 28th Street and crossed over East Belknap onto Midway Road. When the officer pulled in behind the vehicle and attempted to stop the vehicle, the driver failed to stop the vehicle and fled from the officer southbound in the 2300 block of McGuire. After a short pursuit, the vehicle became disabled after striking a concrete barrier on the service road of SH121 east of Handley Ederville Road. As the vehicle slowed, the driver failed to put the vehicle in park, and the vehicle continued rolling forward as the occupants were exiting. As the driver was exiting the vehicle, he fell to the ground, and as he was getting up, the officer noticed the driver had a handgun in his right hand. The officer heard the handgun discharge, and the driver threw the handgun in the direction of the vehicle and fled on foot into a wooded construction area. The officer did not believe the weapon was fired at him. The officer believed the suspect accidentally fired the weapon as he was getting up from the ground. Additional units arrived on scene and the passenger was taken into custody after hiding behind a concrete barrier. While the vehicle was being cleared by a Haltom City officer and his K9 partner, a Richland Hills officer sustained minor injuries when he was accidently bitten by the K9. A search ensued for the driver that fled on foot. Haltom City and Watauga officers and their K9 partners began tracking the driver. The Texas Department of Public Safety helicopter arrived on scene and assisted with the search.

After a short search, the driver, who was found hiding in an industrial complex, was taken into custody without incident. The driver, who initially gave false information, was identified as Carlos Hernandez, 20 years of age. He faces charges of Evading Arrest or Detention with a Vehicle, Unlawful Possession of a Firearm by a Felon, Possession of a Controlled Substance, and Fail to Identify Fugitive/Giving False or Fictitious Information, as he had outstanding warrants for his arrest from Haltom City and Fort Worth. The passenger was identified as Nicky Channita, 25 years of age. He faces a charge of Evading Arrest or Detention/Previous Convictions. He was also held on outstanding warrants from Haltom City.
