As they search for the shooter, police still haven’t answered the question whether the 31-year-old mother was even the intended target. Officials have only said they do not believe the shooting is the result of a domestic violence situation.
Neighbors say the incident is shocking and out of the norm for their peaceful area.
Block captain Rhonda Thornton said, “We mostly have just a few things going on, maybe unlocked cars getting broken into, something being stolen out of a garage, but other than that, nothing like this.”
The victim’s vehicle was riddled with bullets.
Investigators are asking anyone with information about the shooting to call the HCSO at 713-274-9100 or Houston Crime Stoppers at 713-222-TIPS.MORE NEWS: US To Deport 'Massive' Number Of Haitian Migrants From Texas Border Town
