Police: Rifle-toting woman shoots, kills man outside gas station

HOUSTON—A rifle-toting woman shot and killed a man Sunday evening during an altercation at a gas station in southeast Houston, and it was all captured on surveillance video.

It happened in the 6800 block of Cullen Boulevard shortly before 7 p.m. at the Gulf gas station, according to Houston police.

Surveillance video shows a woman, who was dressed in camouflage shorts and a white t-shirt, arguing with a man near the gas pumps. At some point, she pulled out a rifle from the trunk of her vehicle and pointed it at the man,

That is when the man took a swing at her, knocking her backward. The woman then aimed her rifle directly at him and fired off several rounds.

To witnesses’ surprise, she then pulled out her cell phone and recorded the body lying on the ground.

The victim, identified by family members as 58-year-old Lewis Daniels, died at the scene.  A knife was also found on the ground near him.

His brother said he didn’t deserve to die.

“Well, my brother is harmless, he’s harmless and he wouldn’t have hurt her. He wouldn’t have hurt nobody,” the brother said. ‘She just didn’t know him, you know. Because if she’d have known my brother, she’d have known that Poochie wouldn’t have hurt nobody.”

The brother said he didn’t believe Lewis knew the shooter, and that he was most likely at the store just buying a pack of cigarettes before he was to catch the bus.

The woman fled the scene, but a witness recorded her license plate number and handed it over to police.

Police tracked her down and took her in for questioning.
