TOMBALL, Texas -- A Tomball woman was shot and killed in her own driveway while setting up for a garage sale nearly four years ago, and investigators have recently revealed the murder weapon that was used.

ORIGINAL REPORT: Tomball woman murdered while setting up for garage sale was raising money for wedding anniversary trip

Elizabeth "Liz" Barreza, 29, was shot four times at point-blank range in January 2019 by a suspect wearing a disguise as she was setting up for a garage sale in the Princeton Place subdivision.

The garage sale was for a wedding anniversary trip for her and her husband, Segio Barraza.

"We need justice for Liz because we don't understand why," Sergio Barraza, her husband, said.

The Harris County Sheriff's Office has released surveillance footage of the shooter and the shooter's truck. Investigators have confirmed for the first time that the gun used in the killing was a revolver.

Police have not caught the suspect.

In the surveillance footage, A 2013 or newer Nissan Frontier Pro X4 Crew Cab is seen stopping in front of Barraza's home. Police said that she was seen greeting the suspect, appearing to say hello. That's when the shots are heard.

According to investigators, the suspect drove away but allegedly came back to ensure that Barraza was, in fact, dead.

Officials called the act calculated and one without pity.

Barraza's family has put out a reward worth $50,000 for anyone with information that leads to the arrest of the suspect.

They also launched a website with all the information and its entirety about the case whokilledlizbarraza.com
