HPD Officer Timothy Abernethy would soon become a murder victim. He met with HPD Officer Derrick Skinner on a disorderly conduct call at 8:30 that morning. Shortly after leaving the location of that call, Officer Abernethy conducted a traffic stop of a Red Dodge Durango. The Durango belonged to appellant’s step-brother, but appellant was driving it. On his on-board computer, Officer Abernethy checked the license-plate number, which was registered in the step-brother’s name and at an associated address. What Officer Abernethy did not know was that appellant was on parole for felony DWI, was driving without a license, and was in possession of a firearm.

Saul Benitez, a resident at the Luxor Park apartment complex, saw the Durango pull into the complex, followed by Abernethy’s patrol car with its flashing lights on. Benitez saw appellant get out of his vehicle and immediately run away. Officer Abernethy yelled at appellant to stop and began chasing him. After Benitez lost sight of both individuals, he heard gunshots. Benitez went inside and began writing down the Durango’s license-plate number.

Ditreuchie Brazil, who made her living as a security guard in Louisiana, was visiting her son and daughter-in-law, who lived at the complex. Upon hearing two gunshots, Brazil ran to the window, hearing four or five more gunshots as she did so. When she looked out the window, she saw Officer Abernethy chasing appellant down the sidewalk. She then saw appellant duck behind a building, turn around, and shoot the officer. After Officer Abernethy fell to the ground, appellant walked over close to the officer’s head and shot the officer in the head. Brazil shouted to her son that an officer had been shot. She saw appellant leave, acting calm. She got a good look at him. Upon hearing gunshots, Michael Triggs looked out the window and saw Officer Abernethy on the ground and appellant running away with a gun in his hand. Triggs saw appellant’s face clearly and noticed that the gun was a semiautomatic weapon. After hearing gunshots, April Alfred went outside and saw Officer Abernethy on the ground with blood coming out of his mouth. After feeling his pulse, Alfred went inside to retrieve her cell phone and some towels to apply to the officer’s wounds. In a second-floor apartment, Cynthia Chatman heard gunshots. After lying on the floor for awhile, she opened her door and saw Officer Abernethy down on the grass. Triggs, Alfred, and Chatman each called 911.

As Benitez was writing down the Durango’s license-plate number, appellant came back to the vehicle and drove away. Benitez got a good look at appellant’s face but was able to write down only the first four digits of the license-plate number. After appellant drove away, Benitez ran to find the officer, who was lying on the ground in a puddle of blood. Benitez then went back to his apartment and called the police and was told that someone was already coming.

Officer Abernethy died soon thereafter.
