|Houston police are investigating the shooting of a woman at 12951 Briar Forest Drive about 2:50 p.m. on Sunday (October 11).
The victim, Caitlin Robinson-Walker, 21, was transported to an area hospital in stable condition.
HPD Major Assaults & Family Violence Division Officer B. Fowler reported:
HPD patrol officers responded to a shooting at an apartment complex at the above address and determined Ms. Robinson-Walker had been transported by Houston Fire Department paramedics to an area hospital with a gunshot wound to the leg.
A preliminary investigation determined Robinson-Walker went to the above address with other persons to retrieve property after a recent break up with the suspect. Robinson-Walker forced her way into the apartment, where the suspect was holding a rifle, pointed downward. Robinson-Walker refused to leave and the suspect pushed her out. The altercation continued outside in the parking lot.
At some point, a maroon Kia Optima, with Arizona license plates, arrived at the location and the suspect got into the car. Robinson-Walker approached the vehicle to continue the altercation and the suspect pushed her face with his hand. Robinson-Walker then struck the car window and ran away. The suspect then exited the vehicle, still holding the rifle, and shot Robinson-Walker in the leg. The suspect then fired at least twice more, striking Robinson-Walker’s vehicle as the occupants fled the scene. Shortly after, Robinson-Walker’s vehicle became disabled. Paramedics responded to the scene and transported Robinson-Walker to the hospital.
No charges have been filed at this time, as the investigation is continuing.
Anyone with information in this case is urged to contact the HPD Major Assaults &Family Violence Division at 713-308-8800 or Crime Stoppers at 713-222-TIPS.
