Woman fatally shoots man at gas station, continues to pump gas

HOUSTON, Texas (KPRC) – A man is dead and a woman is in jail after a shooting at a gas station in southeast Houston.

According to Houston police, the man approached the woman at around 7 p.m. Sunday night at the Gulf Station on in the 6800 block of Cullen near Yellowstone. Police say the man made sexual advances toward her, but she told him repeatedly to go away.

Houston police say the man then produced a knife and advanced toward her. The woman then went back to her trunk and got a .22 caliber gun and fired multiple shots at the man, killing him in the parking lot, investigators say.

Relatives say the woman went back to her car and grabbed a camera and began recording the shooting victim, but police have not confirmed that.

Police say the gas station does have security cameras, and that they were rolling at the time.

Officials said the two were seen arguing before the man swung at her. The woman backed away, then held up a gun, and shot it at the man. She then put the gun back in her trunk and continued to pump gas.

Witnesses were able to give her license plate to investigators.

The 23-year-old woman was arrested a short time later.

Police say this case is being referred to a Harris County grand jury.

Authorities have not yet released the names in this incident.
