HOUSTON — A woman shot and killed in southwest Houston may have been the victim of a road rage incident, according to investigators.

Houston police responded about 7:25 a.m. Wednesday to the 10300 block of Buffalo Speedway near W. Airport Boulevard.

Investigators said Bridgett Holloman, 51, was going westbound on W. Airport Boulevard when she was shot by a suspect in a white Jeep Cherokee with tinted windows. 

According to officers, a man riding with Holloman fired back at the Jeep as the suspect drove away.

Holloman was taken to the hospital, where she later died. Police said a man who was in the car with the victim was not injured.

It is possible the suspect's Jeep has bullet holes in the rear of the vehicle, investigators said.

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