MCTXSheriff Assists Splendora PD in Shooting Investigation

On August 13, 2023, at approximately 12:02 p.m. Splendora Police Department responded to an Assault Firearm call in the 14000 block of Lucas Lane in Splendora, TX. Upon arrival, officers found a 37-year-old female with a single gunshot wound and immediately began life saving measures. The victim was transported to a local hospital where she is in stable condition.

The suspect, Nicholas Starkey age 22, fled the scene on foot. The Montgomery County Sheriff’s Office was called to assist and a perimeter was set up. An MCSO K9 unit located the suspect and he was transported to the Montgomery County Jail where he will be charged with Aggravated Assault with a Deadly Weapon.

The victim and suspect were acquaintances and this shooting appears to have stemmed from an argument amongst the individuals involved.

Montgomery County Sheriff’s Office Homicide and Violent Crimes Detectives along with Crime Scene Investigators, responded and are investigating this case.
This was an isolated incident between the involved parties and there is no threat to the public.

No further information is available for release at this time.

Thank you to the Precinct 4 Constable’s Office and the Splendora Police Department for the partnership and teamwork today.
