Suspect in custody in fatal shooting of young man in Spring

- Deputies say that  Ja'Corrie Rogers is now in custody. He is a suspect in the murder of Darius Flournoy, 21, who was shot and killed while playing basketball with a group of teens.

Around 6:45 p.m. Monday, investigators say, the young men were  playing basketball in the 2400 block of Autumn Springs.

According to deputies, a black male, 19-20 years old, approached the group as they were playing basketball in the street and opened fire on them. 

One of the men was shot multiple times. Neighbors say they believe that an argument escalated over a pair of shoes, and that the neighborhood teens had problems with the suspect in the past.  

First responders did give the victim CPR on the way to the hospital but he later died from his injuries.

That suspect took off and by the time police got here he was gone.

The suspect is known in the neighborhood and by witnesses.

If you have any information in this case, please call Crime Stoppers at 713.222. 8477
