DENVER -- One of the suspects in a homicide and robbery at a 7-Eleven store has been charged in an alleged drive-by shooting, the Denver District Attorney’s office announced Wednesday.

David Houston, 25, is charged with a drive-by shooting on July 8 in the 51000 block of North Titan Court. The shooting injured a 26-year-old man, his 3-year-old son and 6-year-old niece, officials said.

“Everybody was just sitting down chilling, talking, having a family time,” Isela Haerrada said.

Herrada called 911 the night of the shooting.

“I kind of just heard six shots," Haerrada said.

The 26-year-old is still in a boot from when he was shot in the foot. A permanent scar is on his 3-year-old boy's head.

“It was open really bad, it was bleeding a lot,” Haerrada said.

Houston faces five counts of first-degree criminal attempt to commit murder, three counts of first-degree assault and one count of illegal discharge of a firearm.

Houston was already charged with felony murder and robbery in the July 9 death of 39-year-old Justin Slyter at the 7-Eleven in the 500 block of East Colfax Avenue.

Investigators say the vehicle in the 7-Eleven case might have been the same one involved in the drive-by shooting.

Houston’s ankle monitor allegedly placed him at the scene of the drive-by shooting, authorities said.

Houston will appear in court for the drive-by shooting on Thursday.
