HOUSTON SHOOTING INVESTIGATION: WHO IS NATHAN DESAI?
We're learning more about a Houston attorney whose vehicle was connected to a violent shooting Monday that injured nine people in southwest Houston.
The HPD bomb squad was in the process of searching Nathan DeSai's Porsche when Eyewitness News confirmed the vehicle was registered to him.
A source told abc13 the vehicle was filled with weapons, prompting officials to use a bomb robot to search the car.
We spoke with DeSai's father who said the attorney lived near Weslayan and Bissonnet, the site of this morning's shooting. He also confirmed the attorney drove a black Porsche.
DeSai was troubled by a downturn in business at his law office, his father said. When Eyewitness News went by the office, no one could be found.
His former law partner, Ken McDaniel, told Miya Shay the firm dissolved six months ago, but would not go into the reasons why.
DeSai's father says his son continued to represent clients, but worked out of his home.
After the shooting broke out, DeSai's father said he tried to contact his son.
So far, all he's heard is his voicemail message.
