Christine Alexandra Fesus, 34, told Harris County MPs it all started when she was walking her dog and found herself in some sort of confrontation with a homeless woman.
The shooting took place outside a Food Town store around 11:30 p.m. Sunday near FM-1960 and Ella Boulevard.
Fesus lives in an apartment complex behind the company. She told detectives that the homeless woman had aggressively approached her, or possibly attacked her.
The Harris County Sheriff’s Office released a statement Monday afternoon and said “a review of nearby surveillance video did not support Fesus’ version of the confrontation.”
Fesus took out the gun she was carrying and shot the homeless woman once. She then returned home and called 911.
Paramedics declared the homeless woman dead on arrival.
Witnesses rushed to try to help the woman who was hit. It is not known exactly what led to the confrontation.
Friends and family identified the slain woman as 36-year-old DeAndrea Citizen.
Many were seen sharing their condolences on Monday by writing notes on the wall near where the gunshot was shot.
Friends told ABC13 that Citizen was homeless and had mental health issues.
They said she usually slept outside a church in the same mall as Food Town. An employee who works at a store in the area described Citizen as “gentle”.
Fesus is currently in detention. She appeared in court on Monday afternoon and her bond was set at $ 75,000.
