Derrick Williams could see his charges upgraded.
A man who sheriff's deputies say shot a man in a wheelchair from his car has turned himself in, the Harris County Sheriff's Office says.

The HCSO says Derrick Williams, 24, stopped his Buick Roadmaster in the 400 block of Cypress Avenue Friday in far northwest Harris County and began talking to a man in a wheelchair.

He then fired at him, deputies say. The victim was taken to the hospital and later died. A bystander was also hit.

Williams currently faces two charges of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon, but the DA's office can upgrade to murder if they choose.

HCSO spokesperson Christina Garza said the name of the male victim has not been released. (Update: He's been identified as Corey Wayne Comeaux, 30.) The bystander who was hit, Fannie Washington, 35, is expected to recover.

With the user seated upright in a chair, measure the distance from the inside of the knee to the back of the seat. Then subtract an inch or two to allow for relaxed posture.

It didn't matter how much crime he committed, he didn't deserve to die that way. People fail to realize that they are not God and no one can judge nobody. God only has that power cause everyone has sinned in some type of way.God died for our sins. Corey was someone's son, father, brother. Think about his kids. Y'all are posting all this BS @ him and they are grieving.His daughter just posted something days ago. I'm pretty sure she is still reading all the comments.Show some type of respect and let his kids mourn the way they need to and let him rest in peace.

NO MAN HAS A RIGHT TO JUDGE ANOTHER MAN. THAT JOB IS FOR GOD and GOD ONLY! MEN IN THIS COUNTRY STILL MILLIONS EVERYDAY DOESNT REFLECT WHERE THEY WILL GO WHEN THEY DIE. PICK UP A BIBLE AND PUT DOWN YOUR SATANIC BOOK AND READ WITH UNDERSTANDING.
