Authorities said they learned the suspect, 46-year-old Latunya Wright, and a customer had gotten into a verbal altercation that turned physical.
Another customer, Marquita Boyle, captured the incident on cell phone video and spoke to KTRK about what she witnessed.
“She had the gun pointed at him and then she turned around with the gun, and she actually cocked the gun,” Boyle told KTRK.

Boyle said Wright saw her recording the incident, hit her on the head with the gun and grabbed her phone to delete the video. Wright then put the phone in a file cabinet, according to Boyle.
However, Boyle was able to recover the video for police.
“My vision is blurry in my left eye. It’s still blurry. I have headaches. My anxiety is through the roof,” Boyle said.
