HPD Homicide Division Sergeant B. Thomas and Officer R. Moss reported:

The victim drove to her ex-boyfriend's residence and waited for him to return home.  When he arrived with another woman, the victim became angry and began a verbal and physical confrontation with the woman.  The victim picked up a shovel and started swinging it at her ex-boyfriend.  The male managed to take the shovel away from the female.  She then went to her vehicle, retrieved a knife and began walking toward the passenger seat of a vehicle where the other woman was seated.  At that time, the woman, 22, retrieved a pistol.  When the victim opened the car door, the woman fired one shot, striking the female victim in the head.  Paramedics pronounced her deceased at the scene.
