Unidentified Austin Woman, 24, Killed Allegedly Buying Weed, Bayou Body Count No. 77

A 24-year-old Austin woman was shot and killed after a weed buy turned into a robbery, Houston police say.

The woman, whose identity has not been released, was with two other Austin women when they met three males to buy some pot in the 200 block of Rosamond Sunday night, HPD says.

The location is near the Gallery Furniture store on I-45.

As the transaction was taking place around 8 p.m., police say, the three men "produced weapons and demanded the females' money and cell phones. When the victim gave her cell phone and purse to the suspects, one of them shot her in the chest."

The other women were not hurt. The suspects. "described only as one black male and two Hispanic males, were last seen in a black Dodge quad-cab pickup truck," police say.

Anyone with information in this case or on the identities of the suspects is urged to contact the HPD Homicide Division at 713-308-3600 or Crime Stoppers at 713-222-TIPS.
