Man Kills Fire Inspector in “domestic incident”

The shooting happened at about 10 a.m. just after David Stoneham [Houston Fire Department inspector] pulled up to his house, in the 530 block of Troy, with his 17-year-old daughter in the car.

“Next thing she knows, moments later, is that she hears what sounds like a shot gun racking,” said HPD Public Information Officer John Cannon. “And then just moments after that, she hears two shots and sees her stepfather shoot her father at point-blank range.”

Witnessed said they heard gun shots before the suspect, identified as Alain M. Bell, fled in a black Chevy pickup truck.

“It was really, really loud. And that’s what scared me so much,” said Linda Walker. “By the time I got to the living room, I heard the second shot.”

The noise came from two houses down from Walker’s home. “So I came to see and I said, ‘Are you OK?’ And she said, ‘No, that’s my dad. My stepdad just shot my dad.’”
