Police Officer Jesse Hamilton was shot and killed after responding to a domestic disturbance call at a trailer park near the intersection of Shaver Road and Queens Road at approximately 6:30 am.

He had responded to the scene approximately 20 minutes earlier. As Officer Hamilton interviewed a female on the porch he learned that the male subject was armed with a handgun. Moments later the man emerged from the trailer and shot him.

Another officer arriving at the scene observed the suspect standing over Officer Hamilton's body. When the suspect turned towards the officer he was shot once in the head and wounded. The man was convicted of Officer Hamilton's murder and sentenced to 40 years in prison.

Officer Hamilton was transported to Memorial Hermann Hospital-Texas Medical Center where he succumbed to his wounds.

Officer Hamilton had served with the Pasadena Police Department for four years. He is survived by his wife and two daughters.
