HOUSTON A 24-year-old Houston man has been charged in connection with the shooting death of a woman at a northwest Houston apartment complex, police said.

Leonard Keith Dawson is charged with murder in the shooting death of Julia Green, 21, court documents state.

According to the Houston Police Department, it happened around 12:30 a.m. at the Oak Villa Apartments in the 3500 block of West Little York near T.C. Jester.

Investigators said patrol officers responded to a shooting call where Green and Dawson lived.

When police arrived at the scene, they found Green inside her apartment. Dawson told investigators Green had shot herself, but evidence at the scene contradicted that statement.

Following an interview with HPD homicide investigators, Dawson was arrested without incident.
