|Houston police are investigating the shooting of a woman at 8001 West Tidwell about 5:40 a.m. on Sunday (Feb. 10).
The victim, 57, sustained at least two gunshot wounds and was transported to an area hospital in stable condition.
HPD Major Assaults & Family Violence Division Officer C. Lamont reported:
An unknown suspect knocked on the door of the victim's apartment and asked for someone the woman said she did not know. When the woman asked a family member to get a phone so she could call 911, she was struck by gunfire at least twice on her right side.
A preliminary investigation indicates an unknown suspect on the bottom steps of an apartment stairwell fired the shots into the woman's second floor apartment.
At this time, there is no known suspect or motive in the shooting.
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.
