HOUSTON – A man has been arrested and charged after Houston police said he fatally shot a 24-year-old woman and wounded two men outside a hookah bar in southwest Houston.
Gregory Allen, 28, is charged with murder and aggravated assault with a deadly weapon. He was taken into custody on Thursday.
On Jan. 1, police were called to a hookah bar located in the 11700 block of South Wilcrest Drive around 2 a.m. Investigators said Italia McGregor, 24, and two men were exiting the bar when they encountered Allen and another suspect at the parking lot. A fistfight ensued and arguments escalated between them, and at some point, both men fired gunshots at the trio, killing McGregor and wounding the two men.
Both Allen and the second suspect fled in a white Dodge Charger, police said.
Allen is set to appear in court on Jan. 10.
Police said the second suspect, described as a 26-to-29-year-old male, is still on the run. Surveillance images released by police show him wearing a black hoodie, black headband, white shoes, and black pants.
