Woman shot and killed at mall www.privateofficer.com
Houston Texas Nov. 28, 2007
A man shot his girlfriend and then killed himself as she was opening a lingerie store in a Texas mall on Tuesday, police said.
The man apparently confronted the woman as she was opening the security gate over the store as the store was about to open, said Houston Police Lt Albert Mihalco. The store showed signs that the two struggled before the woman was shot in the head. The man apparently then killed himself in front of a few people who had begun coming into the mall as it was opening for bsuiness, Mihalco said.
The shooting was reported while most stores were still closed but there were a number of people in the mall and in the general area police said.
Mall employee Deborah White said she was about to raise the security gate that covered another store when a security guard ran down the mall corridors, pounding on gates and doors and telling everyone to evacuate.
The mall was closed down for a period of time as police processed the scene and the mall management said that they would address the press at a later time.
Police officers are looking into the history of the victim and the shooter and call this another senseless killing.
