HOUSTON – The man who allegedly shot and killed his manager at an office building in Greenway Plaza has been charged with murder, court documents reveal.
Montavius Terrell Wright, 26, received a payout of $500,000. A judge ordered that Wright not contact the victim’s family and all employees at Cedar Gate Technologies, the business where the shooting took place. Wright was also ordered to give up his passport and stay in Harris and surrounding counties. He will have GPS monitoring and a 24-hour curfew.
HPD and the Houston Fire Department responded to reports of an active shooter at a business located in the 3800 block of Cummins around 11:58 a.m.
Authorities said Wright shot his supervisor, who has been identified as Doran Kelly, 48, in the head while on the 10th floor of the office building. Officials said Kelly died at the scene.
Several other employees were inside the building during the shooting, but no one else was injured, according to police. According to court documents, a witness saw Wright enter and they chatted for a minute before the witness returned to their room. The witness also told police that they saw the suspect shooting at the victim with a gun.
Police said they believe the shooting may have been targeted because Wright appeared to be targeting only his supervisor.
Wright surrendered and was arrested a few hours later at the high-rise apartment complex where he lived, located at 1625 Fannin Street.
Wright is scheduled to appear in court on Friday, March 18.
