Harris County deputies are searching for a man they believe walked into a Tomball area office and shot a worker in the face on Valentine's morning.
The Harris County District Attorney's Office has accepted charges of Aggravated Assault with a Deadly Weapon and Aggravated Assault with Serious Bodily Injury against Gary Ishmael Bolin, 61.
Detectives said that Bolin walked into a home that had been converted into office space for a nearby business at the corner of Dogwood and Hufsmith Kuykendahl Road at about 10:30 that morning and shot a 54-year-old employee in the face, after an argument quickly escalated.
Deputies claim the two men had an ongoing dispute, when the suspect walked into the offices.
They said that Bolin did not communicate with anyone else in the building, but went directly to the victim's office and minutes later pulled out a handgun.
Detectives claim that Bolin then fled from the scene in a dark red or possibly maroon over white dually pickup truck. They won't confirm what relationship the pair had, but said that Bolin does have something to do with the property. They also claimed that the two are currently involved in a civil lawsuit against each other.
The suspect was described as a white male, wearing a white cowboy hat, light colored western shirt and blue jeans.
As of press time he was still not in custody. If arrested, Bolin will be held on $60,000 bond.
The Harris County Sheriff's Office is asking that anyone with information on Bolin's whereabouts contact Crime Stoppers at 713-222-8477, or the Harris County homicide unit at 713-967-5810.
