“It happened so fast, you know?” said Tonja George, who saw the argument that ended up turning violent.
George added that both the suspect and the victim are long-time clients.
“The other guy walked into the store saying, ‘Are you okay? Are you okay?’ Stuff like that, ”said George. “He said, ‘Yeah, I’m fine.’ He lifted his shirt and showed his gun. Then he said, ‘That doesn’t mean [anything] tome. I don’t care if I die. ‘”
These may be the victim’s last words as Houston Police continue to investigate her death.
The shooting victim and the accused shooter have not been identified, but we do know someone lost their life because of what witnesses say was something small. The suspect has been arrested.
“As soon as this guy walked out of the store, the man shot him. That was it,” said George.
This is a developing story. This article will be updated as more information becomes available.
