Noel Sosa-Ruiz: On the run with a CHL.
A domestic dispute ended in murder when a man gunned down a woman at her dentist-office job Thursday evening, Houston police say.

Yodani Cruz-Rojas, 29, was killed in a flurry of gunshots from Noel Sosa-Ruiz, 41, with whom police say she was "in a relationship," as she worked her job in the 6000 block of Bissonnet about 6 p.m.

Witnesses said the two, who had two children together, "had been arguing throughout the day."

Sosa-Ruiz is on the run. HPD says he is a security guard with a concealed handgun license.

"Sosa-Ruiz drives a silver minivan, possibly a Dodge Caravan, with unknown Florida license plates. He also drives a white Toyota, unknown model, with partial Texas license plates RZ2 or RZZ," police say.

Anyone with information on the whereabouts of Noel Sosa-Ruiz is urged to contact the HPD Homicide Division at 713-308-3600 or Crime Stoppers at 713-222-TIPS.
