HOUSTON, TX (KTRK) — Police are searching for a man accused of shooting a woman at close range at a gas station on the Old Spanish Trail in southeast Houston.
The shooting took place around 11:30 p.m. Tuesday in the 3900 block of OST near Dupont.
Houston police said the woman, in her 20s, was in the driver’s seat of a car when a man approached her with a handgun and began shooting.
According to witnesses, the man came walking from across the street and appeared to be deliberate about what he was doing.
The woman was pronounced dead at the scene.
According to the police, there were several people nearby at the time and surveillance video.
Officials said the gunman escaped on foot from behind the building and jumped into a dark, possibly maroon, Toyota Corolla with a missing bumper.
“Our homicide detectives are here. They’re pretty confident that they’ll find out who did this. We do not know the motive for the shooting at this time,” said Lt. R Willkens. “An adult male was in the passenger seat of the vehicle when it was shot at. He’s at the crime scene. He stayed here. He actually ran into the store after the shooting happened.
HPD said the suspect was about 6ft tall and was wearing a navy blue or gray hoodie with dark sleeves and blue or black shorts.
