Emerson Hernandez 25 charged for shootings, victims identified
Emerson Hernandez Arrested – At around 9:10 p.m. on February 18, 2022, a man was shot and killed at 1300 Hadley Street, while another man was shot and wounded at 1300 Webster Street. A suspect has been detained in connection with both shootings, and charges have been filed against the suspect. The suspect, identified as Emerson Hernandez, 25, is currently being held in the 209th State District Court on charges of capital murder as well as aggravated robbery with a deadly weapon. This news release includes Hernandez’s mugshot that was taken at the time of his arrest.
Adam Phillips, who was 50 years old, has been identified as the victim who passed away. Kevin Rogers, age 40, the second victim, made it through his injuries unscathed. L. Patterson and N. Henderson, both of the Homicide Division of the HPD, made the following report: Following a shooting call at 1300 Webster Street, HPD patrol officers arrived on the scene and found Mr. Rogers suffering from multiple gunshot wounds. In light of his life-threatening injuries, paramedics from the Houston Fire Department rushed him to the nearest hospital.
After a few minutes, officers responded to a report of a second shooting at the 1300 Hadley address, where they discovered Mr. Phillips suffering from multiple gunshot wounds. The HFD paramedics confirmed that Phillips had passed away. An initial investigation and evidence gathered at the scene suggested that the same suspect may have been responsible for both shootings. This person had previously attempted to rob the victims of their property.
Emerson Hernandez taken into custody
The only description of the suspect was that he was a person of white or Hispanic descent dressed entirely in dark apparel. It looked like the left arm of his garment had a patch that was either white or a lighter hue. Hernandez was found to be the gunman in both events after more research was conducted. Hernandez had been detained in the Harris County Jail on a charge that was unrelated to the shootings when he was subsequently accused in connection with the two shootings on January 11.
