November 13, 2012 -  The death of a woman at 7600 Bellerive about 5 a.m. last Friday (Nov. 9) will be referred to a Harris County Grand Jury.

Marilyn Rodriguez, 18, of Houston, was pronounced dead at the scene.

HPD Homicide Division Sergeant R. Chandler and Senior Police Officer K. Carr reported:

Ms. Rodriguez and two of her friends began arguing next to one of the friends' cars at the above address.  During the argument, Rodriguez attempted to get in the car at the same time her brother began to strike the back windshield of the car with a stick.  The driver and the other friend, unsure of where the attack was coming from, became afraid for their safety.  The driver then pushed the gas pedal in an attempt to get away from the strikes on the car.  Rodriguez fell from the car when it accelerated and was then fatally struck by the vehicle.
