Woman Arrested After Deadly Shooting In Texas Suburb

PASADENA (July 20, 2014) A woman was in custody Sunday after a shooting in front of a home in a quiet neighborhood in the Houston suburb of Pasadena that left another woman dead.

The woman was arrested Saturday afternoon a short time after the shooting just a few blocks from the crime scene, Pasadena Police Department spokesman Vance Mitchell said.

He said it is unclear what led to the shooting, but said the two women evidently knew each other.

The names of the two women weren’t immediately released.

Mitchell says police found a handgun that was thrown from a car window and believe that it was the murder weapon.
