HOUSTON, Texas (KTRK) -- Houston police are searching for the suspect who shot and killed a woman in a bank parking lot in southeast Houston.

The shooting happened Sunday at about 12:44 a.m. at a Chase bank on Woodridge in the Gulfgate area. Investigators said an officer working an extra job nearby heard a gunshot and found the victim, a 49-year-old woman, on the ground as the man ran away.
