According to a press release from the Houston Police Department, authorities responded to 12101 Fondren Road to a report of a shooting. Upon their arrival, officers reportedly found three deceased victims: 6-year-old Harmony Carhee; 29-year-old Donyavia Lagway; and 35-year-old Gregory Carhee. Police say they all suffered gunshot wounds. A 10-year-old female victim was reportedly transported to the hospital to treat her injuries.
According to KPRC-TV, the 10-year-old victim told authorities a man knocked on the door. Her father reportedly answered before the fatal shooting.
The 10-year-old victim allegedly played dead during the shooting and was able to FaceTime her grandma and other relatives to let them know she had been shot and to alert police. According to KPRC, an unharmed 1-year-old was also inside the home. The girl reportedly told authorities the shooter placed the 1-year-old on the couch and then started shooting.
According to police, the first suspect, Xavier Davis, was arrested in July 2021 and charged with capital murder, aggravated assault with a deadly weapon, and aggravated robbery with a deadly weapon. The robbery charge reportedly stems from a carjacking he committed an hour before the shooting. Police say he stole a Jeep Compass near the 10000 block of Larkwood.
Upon further investigation, on Wednesday, March 2, police say Alexus Williams was arrested for her role in the crime. She is reportedly charged with capital murder and aggravated assault with a deadly weapon.
According to police, Williams "had a prior dating relationship with one of the victims, Ms. Lagway, and they had broken up shortly before the shootings." Williams reportedly planned the robbery and arranged for Davis to be the shooter. The two suspects have been friends since childhood, police say.
