Suspect in NW Houston police chase wanted for questioning in murder case
HOUSTON (KTRK) -- A murder suspect was arrested after police say he led them on a chase through northwest Houston Tuesday afternoon.
Police started chasing a white GMC Yukon around 6:15pm near the area of Hempstead and Antoine.
SkyEye HD was overhead as the suspect led authorities through several side streets for about 15 minutes. He finally came to a stop at an intersection in the 7800 block of Kempwood, where a spike strip had been laid out.
Officers quickly surrounded the car with their weapons drawn and pulled out the suspect, identified as 35-year-old Onturia Lawade White. He was tackled, handcuffed and taken into custody.
Officers at the scene say White is wanted for questioning in the murder of a woman whose body was found inside a gated community in Humble on Monday.
