HOUSTON, Texas (KTRK) -- Police are going through surveillance video to figure out who shot and killed a woman in her 20s in northeast Houston overnight.

The shooting happened in the 300 block of Rosamond Street near the North Freeway around 11:40 p.m. Wednesday.

Officials said the woman was walking from a convenience store back to her apartment with a friend.

A witness told police a white minivan or small SUV pulled up, and the woman walked over to talk to the driver.

That's when the witness heard a gunshot, and the woman went down. The driver fled the scene.

"We don't have a description on any suspects at this point," Lt. R. Willkens said. "Homicide investigators are going to be here. We're going to look at video, try to find everything we can."
