Fatality Collision – 5400 NE Loop 820 (Eastbound)

On Sunday, August 30, 2020, at approximately 8:35 p.m., Haltom City Officers responded to a report of a wrong way driver traveling westbound in the eastbound lanes of the 5600 block of NE Loop 820. Witnesses reported a blue Chevy pickup was traveling westbound in the eastbound lanes of NE Loop 820. As officers started to arrive in the area, they drove upon a crash that had just occurred in the 5400 block of NE Loop 820 eastbound. The two vehicles involved, a gray BMW passenger car and a blue Chevrolet Silverado pickup, were sitting on the inside lane and shoulder of NE Loop 820. The BMW was starting to catch fire. Officers were able to pull two occupants of the BMW out of the wreckage before the vehicle caught fire further; however, they were unsuccessful in removing the third passenger from the vehicle. The occupant of the pickup was pulled away from the fire. All three occupants of the BMW, an adult male, an adult female, and a minor female, were pronounced deceased at the scene. The sole occupant of the pickup was taken by CareFlight to Harris Methodist in Fort Worth with life threatening injuries. It is believed that alcohol was a factor in the collision. Traffic investigators, crime scene, and detectives were called to the scene to conduct their investigation.

The male driver of the gray BMW has been identified by the Tarrant County Medical Examiner’s Office as Favian Chavez Garcia, 35, of Dallas. The other two occupants of the vehicle have not been identified, yet.

The suspect, Sione Pitone Nusi, 45 years of age from Irving, faces three counts of Intoxication Manslaughter. He was seen by a magistrate, today, and his bond has been set at $100,000 for each count ($300,000 total). He remains in-custody in the intensive care unit of Harris Methodist in Fort Worth. No mugshot was available due to him being in the hospital.

Capital Murder – 4900 block of Orien St.

On Saturday, August 1, 2020 at approximately 9:45 p.m. Haltom City officers responded to a residence in the 4900 block of Orien St. in reference to a stabbing. Upon arrival, officers found a seven-year-old male victim with multiple stab wounds. While officers began immediate first-aid to the victim, officers located the suspect at the intersection of Katrine St and Katrine Ct. The suspect, the twenty-year-old brother of the victim, had an apparent self-inflicted wound to his upper-body. The suspect was taken into custody without incident and provided first-aid.

The suspect was transported to John Peter Smith Hospital for treatment of his wounds. The victim was transported to Cook Children's Medical Center. Unfortunately, despite the best efforts of all involved, the victim was pronounced deceased a short time after arrival.

At this time, we are unable to ascertain a motive. Due to the age of the victim, the suspect is expected to be charged with Capital Murder. This is an active investigation and more information will be released as it becomes available.

Robberies

On Tuesday, July 7, 2020 and Wednesday, July 8, 2020, Haltom City had two robberies occur that we believe involved the same suspects:

On Tuesday, July 7, 2020, at approximately 5:20 p.m. Haltom City officers responded to the 3100 block of Glenda Ave in reference to a robbery. The victim was an electrician working at a residence on the street and was in his car waiting for the other workers to arrive. Two males approached his vehicle on foot and ordered him out of the vehicle at gunpoint. The two suspects got into the car and fled the area. The victim said the suspect with the gun was wearing a mask and black jacket with a hood. The victim did not have a good description of the second suspect. Surveillance footage from the residence shows the suspects were dropped by a dark colored Chrysler 300 sedan with large, star shaped rims. The suspects appear to both be Hispanic males. The victim’s vehicle is a dark silver 2012 Toyota Camry (Texas license plate BGB8647) with a shattered rear window.

On Wednesday, July 8, 2020 at approximately 11:30 a.m., we received report of a robbery at 1718 Haltom Rd., Doc’s Food Store #7. Witnesses described two Hispanic males enter the store, one armed with handgun and demanding money. They fled the store and were observed getting into a silver Toyota Camry with Texas license plate BGB8647, the vehicle stolen from the previous robbery, and being followed by a dark colored Chrysler 300 with large, star shaped rims. They were last seen getting on northbound Highway 121.

The suspects and vehicles used in these robberies appear to be involved in similar incidents in Fort Worth and Hurst. Our detectives are working closely with neighboring agencies to attempt to identify and locate these suspects. If anyone has information on these suspects, please contact the Haltom City Police Department at 817-222-7000.

Images of the suspects & vehicles involved can be seen in the attached PDF file linked above.

HCPD Media Release - June 1, 2020

Date of Incident: Monday, Jun 1 2020
Time of Incident: 2:45 p.m.
Shooting – 4100 Northern Cross Blvd.

On Monday, June 1, 2020, at approximately 2:45 p.m. Haltom City officers responded to The Grand on Beach apartment complex, located at 4100 Northern Cross Blvd, in reference to a shooting. Upon arrival, officers located a male in his early thirties with a gunshot wound to his abdomen. First aid was rendered and the male was transported to John Peter Smith Hospital for treatment. After an investigation, it was determined that the male was shot while attempting to force entry into an apartment. Due to his injuries and need for medical treatment, the suspect was released at the hospital with charges pending.

After interviewing several witnesses and the victim, it is believed the suspect and several other males and females attempted to force their way into the victim’s apartment. The victim, believing his life was in danger, fired a single round from a handgun towards the suspect. This appears to stem from a personal feud between residents of the victim’s apartment and the suspect. The victim, a 19 year old male, was released at the scene and charges are not anticipated. No arrests were made at this time.

This is still an on-going investigation and additional arrests and/or charges may be forthcoming. Information will be released as it becomes available.
