Roberto Amaya Pacas

09/04/1966

Shortly after 9:00pm, Sunday evening August 13th, 2017 La Porte Police Department (LPPD) Communications Center received a call for gunshots being fired in the 3200 block of Tara Place, La Porte Texas.

 

Upon arrival first responders found three persons with gunshot wounds. A 50 year old female, 26 year old male and a 14 year old male were transported by La Porte EMS via ambulance to area hospitals for their injuries. The two adults were treated and released. The teenager underwent surgery and remains in the hospital.  All of the victims are related, mother and sons.   

 

The fourth person involved in the shooting, 50-year-old Roberto Amaya Pacas, of Houston, fled the scene in a white Toyota Tundra, four door pickup truck before the police arrived.  A short time later Pacas was located by the Pasadena Police Department after having been involved in a hit and run accident. Pasadena Police contacted LPPD Detectives who confirmed that the male was in fact involved in the La Porte shooting.

 

On Tuesday, August 15th, 2017, Detectives with the LPPD Criminal Investigations Division, contacted the Harris County District Attorney’s Office (HCDAO) and presented the evidence and details of this case. The HCDAO accepted three counts of Aggravated Assault with a Deadly Weapon on Pacas. A no bond warrant was obtained and Pacas is now in the custody of the La Porte Police Department. Pacas is still hospitalized and under twenty-four-hour watch by LPPD officers waiting for custody transfer to the Harris County Sheriff’s Office.
