On Saturday, Oct. 1, at approximately 2:52 p.m., sheriff’s deputies responded to a 9-1-1 call related to a shooting incident in the 3300 block of Pimlico Pine Lane in Katy. Inside the residence deputies found an adult female victim, 27, with a gunshot wound. The suspect, Yu Heng Tao, 44, was identified as a relative of the victim and was also found on location at the time of the investigation.

Tao was placed in custody at the Fort Bend County Jail and has been charged with Aggravated Assault-Family Violence. His bond is set at $500,000.

The victim was transported to the medical center downtown for treatment and has since been released.

“Despicable acts of domestic violence have no place in this county or anywhere else,” said Fort Bend County Sheriff Eric Fagan. “October is Domestic Violence Awareness Month, which reminds us that It’s time to end the silence and suffering—for the victims, the victims’ families, and our community.”
