UTMB doc charged in drive-by shooting
Galveston County Daily News (Internet / Print) 07/27/06 A Dickinson man was recovering Wednesday from two gunshot wounds at a University of Texas Medical Branch hospital, where the man accused of shooting him practiced medicine. Hospital spokeswoman Jennifer Reynolds-Sanchez said Dr. Wameeth Fadhli would not perform any clinical work while officials investigate the shooting of a 22-year-old bicyclist. Assistant district attorney Xochitl Vandiver, who recommended the bond after conferring with investigators, said the amount was higher than usual for that charge because of concerns for community safety. “At this point, this looks like it could have been just a random shooting, and that makes it a pretty scary crime,” she said. Sheriff’s deputies said that as of Wednesday they had found no evidence that the two men knew each other.
