HOUSTON, Texas (KTRK) -- A woman was shot in the head while sitting in a car behind a hotel in west Houston on Saturday morning, according the Houston Police Department.
At about 1:29 a.m., officers responded to a shooting on the Katy Freeway near Highway 6 at a LaQuinta Inn.
Upon arrival, officers found a 31-year-old woman suffering from a gunshot wound to her head in the passenger seat of a car. She was taken to Ben Taub Hospital in critical condition.
