A pregnant woman called police to report that she shot her boyfriend in self-defense Thursday morning at a home in northern Harris County.
The Harris County Sheriff’s Office was called to the scene of the fatal shooting, located in the 1200 block of Baltic Lane. According to Sgt. D. Wolfford, a 30-year-old woman called and said she shot her boyfriend in self-defense.
The man died at the scene in what appears to be a case of domestic violence.
It is currently unknown how the incident occurred, only that the victim, a 29-year-old African-American man, was fatally shot by a woman who reported the shooting, which occurred while children were in the house.
Wolfford said the woman had injuries consistent with a previous attack on her and was pregnant on her honeymoon.
Two children, a 17-year-old and a 10-year-old boy, were present in the house at the time of the shooting.
When officers entered the home, they found the man lying on the ground with multiple gunshot wounds.
The woman was taken to the hospital where she was treated for her injuries. It has not been announced if charges will be filed in this case.
