HOUSTON, TX (KTRK) — Police are searching for a 20-year-old woman accused of shooting dead two sisters on Houston’s south side last month.
Melanie Bazan, 20, has been charged with two counts of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon. She wasn’t arrested.

Police released an earlier mug shot of Bazan from 2021 in hopes someone might have information on where she is.
Houston police officers were dispatched to a shooting at approximately 10:15 p.m. on July 17 at an apartment complex at 7100 Village Way.
Investigators said a vehicle pulled up and a woman in the back seat began arguing with the sisters.
