HOUSTON – Police say a 30-year-old woman is dead after an attempted carjacking at a gas station in southwest Houston.
The medical examiner has identified the victim as Kiesha Price.
She was in a BMW sedan with her boyfriend and the boyfriend's uncle when they stopped at a Valero on Bissonnet and Leawood Boulevard, just west of Wilcrest. The two men went into the store while she stayed in the car in the front passenger seat.
Surveillance video shows two male suspects on BMX style bicycles go up to the car and open the doors. There was a struggle, and the suspects shot Price.
They fled the scene on their bikes, leaving the wounded Price and the car behind.
Paramedics took Price to the hospital where she was later pronounced dead.
A witness who didn't want to be identified said he heard a gunshot when he pulled into the parking lot.
“I only heard one — that’s all it takes for me to know I don’t need to be around," he said. "They took off quick, but I took off quick too, because I had to get away. I ain't trying to get shot by nobody."
Police are hoping someone will recognize the suspects.
“One main goal here is to get this out to the public,” said HPD Lt. L. Meeler. “Because somebody knows these guys. Someone saw them out here tonight rolling around, knows exactly what they are wearing. Knows their name. We want to appeal to that person – do what is right.”
Anyone with information should call Houston Crime Stoppers at 713-222-TIPS or call HPD Homicide at 713 308-3600.
