The suspect is described only as a black female, heavy set and in her mid 30s. She was wearing a purple top, black shorts and was driving a 2000 black Ford Taurus.
The victim, Dwight Richards, 56, of Houston, suffered wounds from being struck by an automobile and was pronounced dead at the scene.
HPD Homicide Division Sergeant T. Hanslik and Senior Police Officer R. Swainson reported:
The female suspect was inside a vehicle in the parking lot of the Turning Point night club when she got into an argument with some males. The suspect got enraged, backed out of the parking space and left the parking lot southbound on Allegheny Street. The suspect then turned around on Allegheny, turned off her headlights, accelerated her vehicle in an unsafe manner and headed back toward the club. Mr. Richards, who was in the intersection with other persons leaving the club, was struck by the Taurus and knocked into another lane of traffic. A second vehicle, described only as a white sports utility vehicle not involved in the earlier incident, was traveling eastbound on Old Spanish Trail and struck Richards. Both vehicles, the black Taurus and the white SUV fled the scene.
