Aided by evidence from a portable security camera system funded by the International Management District, Houston police identified and filed capital murder charges against an 18-year-old man who is now in custody in the shooting deaths of two men outside a convenience store/gas station on Bissonnet near S. Kirkwood on Nov. 17.

Houston police filed the charges against Bradley Alex McKay on Dec. 16 and sent information about the case to police in Ponchatoula, La., where McKay was from. They posted his photo on Facebook and within a few hours they located and arrested him. McKay is now being held in the Harris County Jail pending the prosecution of the case.

The men allegedly shot and killed by McKay during a dispute outside the southwest Houston business were 19 and 29 years old.

The board of the International District provides funding for the Zaladium Intelligent Security company’s deployment of moveable security cameras in potential crime “hotspots” in the district. The company provides images from the system to local law enforcement agencies to support their investigations.

The funding is among several ways the District supports public safety initiatives in its service area. Learn more about District initiatives here.
