Woman questioned after ex-boyfriend found shot to death

HOUSTON – A woman is being questioned Friday after her ex-boyfriend was found shot to death at a business in northwest Harris County.

The shooting was reported about 1:50 a.m. near Bart Lane and Fairbanks North Houston Road.

According to Harris County deputies, surveillance video showed the man sitting in a chair and the woman armed with a gun as she paced back and forth. Deputies said the video showed the man getting shot in the neck and the woman dropping the gun.

Deputies said the woman ran to a neighboring location after the shooting and asked someone for help to hide the evidence. Deputies said that when the person refused to help, the woman ran to another person and said she accidentally shot her ex-boyfriend. That was when 911 was called, deputies said.

“The ex-girlfriend has changed her story a couple of times, from someone was attempting to break into the facility, to she accidentally shot him,” said Sgt. Ben Beal, of the Harris County Sheriff’s Office.

Investigators said the video appeared to show the woman and man doing drugs just before the shooting.
