HOUSTON -

A woman was shot multiple times in southwest Harris County on Thursday.

Harris County sheriff's deputies said a woman had car trouble in a bridal shop parking lot on South Highway 6 near Rancho Mission Drive.

A man walked up to the woman just before 4 p.m. and pretended to try to help her, but then he started shooting her, investigators said.

The woman was shot several times, including once in the back.

Deputies at a sheriff's office store front heard the gunshots and ran to help the woman.

The woman, possibly in her 20s, was taken by helicopter to Memorial Hermann Hospital in critical condition.

Investigators said the motive for the shooting may have been robbery. Detectives said witnesses told them they saw a pickup truck or SUV with shiny rims flee the scene after the shooting.
