Houston man facing charges after shooting at a mother and HPD Helicopter

Charges have been filed against 52-year-old Lou Dustin Granados following an assault that took place at a residence on 4218 Crenshaw Street around 2:25 a.m. on Sunday, April 16. Granados is facing charges of aggravated assault of a family member in the 177th State District Court.

Officers from the HPD Major Assaults and Family Violence Division were dispatched to the scene following a report of an assault-in-progress. Upon arrival, they discovered that Granados had assaulted a female and fired shots both inside and outside the residence. An HPD helicopter was called to the scene and was also fired upon by the suspect; however, no damage was caused to the helicopter, and the officers on board were unharmed.

Granados was later detained without incident, and officers recovered a gun from the residence. The Harris County District Attorney’s Office was consulted, leading to charges being filed against Granados. The investigation into the incident is ongoing.
