HOUSTON (CBS Houston) According to officials with the Harris County Sheriff’s Office, a woman was allegedly fatally shot by her boyfriend. The incident happened Saturday around 10:30pm at the North Bend apartments on Cornerstone Village Drive near Loverswood Drive.

Officials state that the couple was inside the apartment with at least two other people when the boyfriend pulled out a gun and shot his girlfriend. One of those with the man and the victim, witnessed the shooting and called 911. It is unclear as to a motive behind the shooting.

The woman’s boyfriend who has only been identified as Melvin, reportedly fled the scene of the alleged crime and remains on the run. Authorities are describing him as a Honduran male who stands approximately five foot two inches tall with a thin build and dark hair.

HCSO authorities are asking anyone who may have information about the alleged shooting to contact the Homicide Unit at 713-967-5810 or call CrimeStoppers at 713-222-TIPS.
