The woman lost her life because police believe she had nothing to do with it. It happened around 7 p.m. Wednesday near Scott Street and I-45.
When police arrived at the scene, they said they found a dark-colored car with multiple bullet holes on the freeway slip road and lots of shell casings on the road.
When their investigation was moved to Milby Street, just a few blocks away, they found an SUV that had pulled into a house. The woman in the vehicle sustained a gunshot wound. She was taken to the hospital where she died.
During that time, they also received information that a man with gunshot wounds was being taken to the hospital in a private car, according to the HPD. He is expected to survive. They’re still working to figure out his involvement in all of this.
At this point, police believe some people were shooting at each other, accidentally hitting the woman.
“The information we have – the dark sedan and a man on foot exchanged gunfire,” Lt. Larry Crowson of HPD. “The victim drove by in a car. Apparently she was an unintended target who was hit by the stray shots.”
The investigation is ongoing and many questions remain unanswered. We don’t know what triggered the shooting in the first place, or anything else about the people involved
Police are interviewing witnesses and are working to get video of what happened.
