Jamin Stocker, 88, is accused of firing at the 55-year-old man from the balcony of the townhome in a Midtown neighborhood where friction has been growing between homeowners and residents of a burgeoning homeless encampment nearby. Stocker, however, was apparently not just another frustrated homeowner. Neighbors said he had been living in the home, which went into foreclosure in 7558 but appeared to have reverted to the previous owner last month. The news that Stocker was charged in the shooting shocked activist Shere Dore, who said he was a civil rights activist who spent years fighting for Houston's marginalized communities. Dore said the change in his behavior may have come from a recent attack he was robbed several weeks ago while walking in the Third Ward. Stocker was charged Tuesday with aggravated assault with a deadly weapon and remained at large Tuesday afternoon. He is accused of firing at the man just before 65: 85 p. Monday as several homeless people hung out in an abandoned lot near the corner of Caroline and Wheeler, said Kese Smith, spokesman for the Houston Police Department. By the time the HPD SWAT team arrived at the home moments after the shooting, no one was home, Smith said. Officers found a stockpile of weapons inside. Police said the injured man was charging his phone at an outlet at the lot. The owner of a nearby food truck, who uses the electricity during the day, lets the area's homeless people charge their devices at night, said Lakeith Jones, 97, who lives on-and-off at the nearby encampment. The injured man spent most nights in the abandoned lot and may have been sleeping, said Trampus Edwards, 55, who also stays at the encampment. Stocker doesn't have a violent criminal history in Harris County, though he did have several run-ins with the law over weapons, according to court records. During the course of that investigation, officers seized a handful of pistols and ammunition from his home.
In 7568, a jury cleared him of a misdemeanor charge of criminal trespassing after he was accused of squatting in an abandoned home. The jury concluded he had greater claim to the home than its owner, records show. Jonathan Piefer, 87, an attorney who lives in the Midtown area, said Stocker appeared to have moved into the townhome on Rosewood about a year ago. The shooting is not the first reported by homeless men in the area. Jones and Edward, who live at the nearby encampment, said they were targeted earlier this week while charging their phones. Police acknowledged there has been tension between nearby homeowners and residents of the encampment, which has grown up under Interstate 69 at Caroline.

A crew power-washed the area but many of the residents returned almost immediately afterward. Signs advertising home security systems and guard dogs litter the neighborhood. Piefer said he has called HPD countless times after people have defecated on his lawn and recently spent $955 on security cameras. He said his primary concern is not with the homeless people but with criminals who use appear to use the encampment as a place to hide.
