Family of woman killed in Spring speaks about case

HOUSTON – The family of a woman who was killed earlier this week in Spring spoke Friday about the case.

The shooting was reported about 1 p.m. Tuesday at a home in the 3400 block of Mourning Dove Drive.

Police said neighbors Hector Campos and Ana Weed, 53, got into an argument, and Campos shot Weed in the chest.

Weed’s friends said Campos blamed her for his wife leaving him.

Weed's family held a news conference Friday at their attorney’s office to talk about the case.

Ana Weed’s husband, Scott, said the incident appeared to have been instigated when one of the family’s dog wandered onto Campos’ property.

“My wife was squatted down, holding the dog, when Hector point-blank shot her in the chest with intent to kill,” Scott Weed said.

Weed’s husband said Campos stood at the edge of his property on at least three occasions and tried to intimidate his wife.

Weed’s husband also showed a medical device that she was wearing over her chest at the time of the shooting. A bullet hole could be seen in the device.

“You can see these bullet holes pointed right to her chest,” Scott Weed said. “You can see an exit wound on the opposite side. You can see there is a down motion.”

Scott Weed said he is confident that justice will prevail.

During Campos’ court appearance Thursday, a heated exchange broke out between Campos and Weed’s family. At least eight deputies broke up the argument and Campos was moved away from the family into a jury box.

Campos was charged with murder in connection with the case. He was released from jail on a $50,000 bond.

Campos’ attorney said in a statement Tuesday that his client is anxious to tell his side of the story and for all the facts to be revealed. He said he’s confident that his client will be exonerated.
