HARIS COUNTY --Authorities are investigating the death of a 34-year-old woman who was found with a gunshot wound in northwest Harris County.
The Harris County Sheriff’s Office says deputies responded to 13900 block of Chuckwood just after 3:30 p.m. Tuesday for the report of a woman’s body found in a residence.
The woman’s oldest daughter and her sisters noticed their mom's car was in the driveway but all the doors were locked.
The 12-year-old daughter broke a window, got in and made the gruesome discovery.
She ran down the street for help and found a neighbor who called 911. That neighbor said moments before the girl ran to him for help, he saw a man leave the house with a plastic garbage bag.
Family members say the man is a friend of the victim, Darlishia Watson.
"Aunt Quita, my mom is dead," the youngest daughter wrote in a text to Quita Wright.
"My heart just dropped,” Wright said.
Harris County deputies say Watson died from at least one gunshot wound and was found in a pool of blood on the floor.
So far, no one has been arrested in the case.
Harris County deputies and Houston police homicide detectives are investigating.
