Two women have been shot, possibly completely at random, as they drove down Loop 410 before dawn in the past two mornings, News Radio 1200 WOAI reports. Police are investigating the possibility that the shootings could be connected, but right now they have NO evidence that is the case. Police also stress there is no evidence that the victims, both female, were targeted due to their gender. There have been no arrests in either shooting.
Angelica Garcia, 35, was shot early Saturday as she drove down the access road of 410 at Nacogdoches Rd.
She is in stable condition at SAAMC, suffering from at least one gunshot wound. Police say the shooting may have been random, but others told police there had been an argument at a nearby club that may have involved the victim.
Witnesses said the shots were fired by somebody in a dark colored Crown Victoria.
Early this morning, a woman was shot as she drove down 410 near Broadway, just west of the Saturday morning shooting. Once again, a vehicle pulled alongside and someone fired several shots into the victim's car. Once again, the woman, who was driving, was rushed to SAAMC suffering from two bullet wounds.
In the Sunday shooting, police were told by one witness that the shots were fired from inside a Toyota SUV. Police said the Sunday incident appears to be random.
