On September 9, 2023, the Harris County Sheriff’s Office responded to a tragic incident that unfolded at 2323 E. Mossy Oaks Rd, near the Grand Parkway (99) and North Freeway. The authorities arrived to discover a deceased female who had suffered multiple gunshot wounds.

The victim has been identified as 26-year-old Shantavia Reddick, an educator by profession. Ms. Reddick had gone to the location to assist a female friend who was embroiled in an ongoing domestic disturbance.

According to investigators, Ms. Reddick had brought her dog with her and was in the process of contacting her friend when the tragic incident occurred. The shooter responsible for her death and the killing of her dog has been identified as Dmitri Humphrey.

Law enforcement officials are now actively seeking Dmitri Humphrey in connection with this incident.

It is worth noting that Humphrey is currently wanted on unrelated felony warrants, and murder charges are pending against him in relation to this tragic event. Harris County Sheriff Ed Gonzalez issued a stern reminder, cautioning against aiding fugitives. He stated, “Think twice before you decide to help a Texas fugitive: If you’re found helping someone commit, conceal, or elude from a felony, YOU yourself may be subjected to being charged.”

In an act of selflessness and bravery, Shantavia Reddick gave her life while attempting to aid her friend during a time of crisis. Tragically, she lost her own life in the process, saving her friend’s life. The investigation into this heartbreaking incident is ongoing.
