Woman Fatally Shot in Northeast Harris County, Boyfriend Suspected

A 31-year-old woman was tragically shot to death in her apartment in the 17410 block of Red Oak Drive near Marne around midnight on Friday. Deputies from the Harris County Sheriff’s Office (HCSO) reported that family members discovered the lifeless body of the victim at the scene.

The HCSO has identified the suspected gunman as the victim’s 51-year-old boyfriend. Preliminary investigations suggest that the woman was allegedly shot and killed by him. Shockingly, the suspect fled the scene with their 1-year-old child.

Law enforcement officials revealed that the boyfriend later returned to the scene, leaving the child with family members before making a getaway once again. Authorities are currently on the lookout for the suspect, described to be driving a dark-colored Dodge Durango.

In their efforts to apprehend the suspect, the HCSO is urging anyone with information about the incident or the whereabouts of the boyfriend to contact them at (346) 286-1600. The investigation is ongoing.

UPDATE: Houston Police Department officers located Mitchell’s vehicle and a male, believed to be Mitchell, is deceased in the car with what appears to be a self-inflicted gunshot wound. Car was found at 6510 N Sam Houston Pkwy E, near Eastex/59. Investigators are enroute.
