Sheldon Magee

Sugar Land, TX – Sugar Land police arrested Sheldon Magee, 44, of Houston, for the murder of Kiva Herrera, 38, of Houston, on Aug. 11.

Police responded to a shooting at the Courtyard by Marriott, 16740 Creekbend Drive, on Aug. 11 at 1:15 p.m. Witnesses reported seeing an altercation between Magee and Herrera in the parking lot of the hotel followed by the sounds of gunshots.  

When police arrived, Herrera was found with a gunshot wound to the head.  First-responders performed CPR, but she was later pronounced dead at the scene. 

One of the first officers to arrive at the hotel located Magee near the parking lot holding a firearm.  An exchange of gunfire occurred between Magee and the responding officer.  Neither man was injured during the firefight, and Magee was taken into custody.

Police believe the shooting resulted from a domestic disturbance.  Herrera had recently ended a relationship with Magee. He located her in the parking lot, where they argued just before he killed her. 

Magee was later charged with murder and attempted murder of a peace officer. He remains in Fort Bend County Jail.
