Chou Ung, 28, was killed at the gas station off Westheimer back in November. Crime Stoppers held a news conference Tuesday, asking for help in finding her killer.

Police say Ung died November 30 after a black male approached her, got into a brief argument with her and fired one shot.

Houston police have some leads but are asking for the public's help in cracking the case. Tuesday was very difficult for friends and family members.

"She's loved by everybody and by all of us. Her friends, all of her friends...," said the victim's brother, Tony Ung. "I can't do it."

"This is just to bring awareness and to celebrate her life in hopes to one day bring justice and peace to her family and her friends," said Ung's friend, Janette Lapis.

Crime Stoppers is offering up to an $11,000 reward for information leading to the identification, arrest and charging of a suspect. If you have any information, you're asked to call 713-222-TIPS.
