Authorities arrived and found the woman's body in the apartment. They believe she died in a violent struggle. Her name has not been released.
"Doesn't look like a shooting or a stabbing, but it's kind of unclear right now. We probably won't know until autopsy tomorrow exactly what her injuries are," Sgt. Kristen McGray with the Houston Police Department said.
News of the homicide had neighbors worried about their safety.
"There's always something happening over here, all the time. It's dangerous," neighbor Ms. Williams said. "I just feel sorry for the person. Too close to your home."
Investigators believe the suspect made the 911 call and fled the scene.
