HOUSTON — Houston police are investigating the scene where a woman was shot in the head while walking to her car Saturday morning.
Police say the woman was sitting in a car in the parking lot of the hotel with another man who was in the driver's seat.
At some point they got out of the car and she motioned to someone about wanting a cigarette, according to HPD.
As the victim was walking to her vehicle, there were several shots fired and the person police believe is the suspect ran from the scene.
Police say the suspect fled westbound and that they discovered an opening in a nearby fence where they believe the suspect escaped.
Police did not have an update on the victim, but say she was taken to Ben Taub Hospital in critical condition and is expected to survive.
Investigators are looking through surveillance footage and asking anyone with information on the shooting to contact the Houston Police Department.
