Woman randomly shot by suspect shooting another man in SW Houston (KPRC)

HOUSTON – A woman was randomly shot in the shoulder by a suspect who was reportedly shooting another man at an apartment complex in southwest Houston early Saturday, police said.

According to Houston Police Lt. R. Willkens, the shooting was reported in the 10600 block of Beechnut Street at around midnight.

Willkens said a woman, who appeared to be in her 30s, was walking around the apartment complex when she saw a man armed with a gun shooting another man. That was when, police said, she was hit in the shoulder by one of the bullets.

The suspect was then found to be shooting at numerous apartments before fleeing the scene, police said.

The woman was transported to an area hospital where she is expected to survive.

Police believe the shooting was random and the woman was not the intended target.

Any information in this case is asked to contact HPD Major Assaults at 713-308-3100.
