HOUSTON - An innocent bystander was shot and killed in front of a child in a shooting at an apartment complex in northwest Houston Thursday afternoon.

Around 2:30 p.m., deputies responded to the complex in the 12900 block of Winfern Road.

Deputies said a couple had been arguing at the complex throughout the day on Thursday and the argument eventually led into the parking lot.

When the woman involved tried to leave, her boyfriend opened fire, shooting her.

At the same time, another woman was driving by with a 2-year-old in her vehicle and she was hit in the gunfire as well.

That woman was found in her vehicle and was pronounced dead on the scene. The child was not injured and is now with relatives. It is unclear if the 2-year-old was the deceased woman's child. 

The suspect's girlfriend was taken to the hospital. Her condition is unknown at this time.

The suspect is in custody at this time as the investigation continues. 

Deputies said the injured woman is around 30 years old. The deceased woman was in her mid 20s.
