Officer Charged in Deadly Raid


Former Houston Police Officer, Gerald Goines, who led the controversial no-knock raid on Harding Street will be charged with two counts of murder, according to his attorney.

Dennis Tuttle and Rhogena Nicholas were shot to death in the Jan. 28 raid in southeast Houston. 

Goines and four other officers were injured in the shootout. 

In the Harding Street warrant, Goines claimed a confidential informant bought heroin at the home of Tuttle and Nicholas the night before the raid. He claimed the informant saw a lot more heroin and a 9mm pistol inside the home.

In a search of the home after the shootout, officers didn't find any heroin or 9mm pistol. 

The District Attorney's Office reviewed more than 1,400 cases involving Goines and some charges were dropped.
