Houston man Lydell Elliott Grant rearrested for fatally shooting man during a minor road rage incident after serving 7 years in prison for fatal stabbing he did not commit: Lydell Grant, a Houston man who was recently released after serving a seven-year sentence for a fatal stabbing that he did not commit, has been arrested again for fatally shooting a man in a minor road rage attack.
On April 6, Grant was involved in a minor collision with Edwin Arevalo after running a stop sign, resulting in a minor accident. Witnesses say Grant left his car and shot Arevalo five times before fleeing the scene.
Grant was arrested a day later after police examined surveillance footage from the area. The victim’s car collided with a Lexus near 13000 Hiram Clarke Road.
Grant has reportedly confessed to the crime and has been charged with murder. In 2021, Grant was exonerated in the fatal stabbing of a man outside a Houston bar in 2010.
Grant’s innocence was proven by DNA evidence and a confession from the real perpetrator, and he spent eight years in prison as a result of the wrongful conviction.
The Innocence Project, which supported Grant’s exoneration, expressed sympathy to the victim’s family and reaffirmed its commitment to supporting those wrongly convicted of crimes.
