Another shooting at Washington car wash

Another shooting at Washington car wash

As police continue to search for two suspects they believe to be related to the Dec. 28, 2017, murder of 20-year-old Anthony L. Green, they must now investigate another shooting at the same Washington Boulevard car wash where the young Beaumont man met his fate.

Beaumont Police Department (BPD) officers responded to the car wash at 3025 Washington at 3:33 p.m. on Jan. 26 in reference to a shooting, Sgt. Cody Guedry reports. When they arrived, the victim was gone, but witnesses told police two men were arguing when the altercation escalated into violence. One of the men pulled a gun, shooting the victim several times as he tried to retreat into his vehicle. The victim then fled in vehicle, and was later found in the 3100 block of Terrell Street. He was still inside the vehicle, alert and conscious but suffering from four gunshot wounds – one to his arm, one to his stomach and one each in both legs. He was transported to St. Elizabeth hospital for treatment.

The suspect reportedly fled on foot and remained at large at the time of this report.

Detectives are gathering more information and continue to interview witnesses as the investigation continues. They are also looking into whether the two shooting are related in any way or if the suspects still at large in the Green homicide could have been involved.

Following Green’s death, police issued a murder warrant for the arrest of 22-year-old Beaumont resident Desmond Roshan Bennett on Dec. 29, 2017, and a second murder warrant for the arrest of 22-year-old David Bryant Parkerson, aka “Lil Dave,” also of Beaumont, on Jan. 4.

Anyone with information about either of the shootings or about the location of the suspects wanted in connection with Anthony Green’s murder is asked to contact the Beaumont Police Department at (409) 832-1234 or Crime Stoppers of Southeast Texas at (409) 833-TIPS (8477).
