The incident occurred at the 700 block of Coolidge Street.
Homicide Sergeant Ben Beall of the Harris County Sheriff’s Office said an old model Ford Explorer with several people arrived at a row of semi-detached houses around 11:30 a.m
There are conflicting stories as to why they were there. Sergeant Beall said witnesses claimed it was for gas money, while others said it was narcotics-related.
According to the sergeant, the area has a long history of drug sales.
Upon arrival, witnesses told deputies a homeowner exited his home with a gun and fired in the air, once at the passenger side of the SUV and once at the driver’s side.
“Apparently there is bad blood between him and the person who owns the vehicle,” Sgt. Beall said. “He recognized the vehicle. They have cameras on their house, spotted the vehicle pulling into the driveway and he walked out gun in hand.”
A 62-year-old woman in the back seat was shot in the chest and pronounced dead at the scene.
The man surrendered when MPs arrived after being held down by two men who witnessed the shooting.
The alleged shooter is said to be 32 years old.
He and two other witnesses were taken for questioning. No charges were filed at this time.
