Officers arrested multiple suspects believed to be involved in a series of robberies in both Fort Bend and Harris counties early Thursday. Officers were monitoring the area of Bissonnet and Beltway 8 around 2 a.m. when they saw two vehicles reported stolen trailing each other, according to the Houston Police Department. Marked units were called in and attempted to stop the suspects, but the drivers refused to pull over. One driver went to Club Creek before jumping out and trying to run. Officers used a stun gun and arrested him. Four other suspects, three men and a woman, went through a backyard on Leawood. Two of them ran and foot while two others stayed in the vehicle.

The Fort Bend County Sheriff’s Office is hoping to identify the remains of a young Hispanic man that were found more than nine years ago.
The sheriff’s office said the remains were found Dec. 17, 2000 near the intersection of the 8500 block of W. Davis Estates Road and FM 1994.
“The remains were discovered in the rural area of Fort Bend County, actually in the vicinity of what is now the dump three or four miles from Fairchilds,” said Sheriff’s Office Detective Scott Minyard. “What we have to go on are the basics: estimated age, height and weight and the brand names on the clothing he was wearing.”

A 28-year-old is accused of shooting his mother in Greenville County, according to Lt. Ryan Flood, with the Greenville County Sheriff's Office. The woman was found about 11:30 p.m. Wednesday in the front yard of the family's home on Edgemont Avenue, Flood said. She had at least one gunshot wound and was taken to the hospital with serious injuries, according to deputies. Flood said the shooting happened during an argument.
