A Dallas woman was fatally shot by her male friend after the victim won a pickup basketball game they had played earlier. According to FOX 4, the fatal incident occurred in South Dallas on October 3.
The victim, identified as 21-year-old Asia Womack, was shot and killed by her male friend following the basketball game. “This was supposed to be a friend of Asia’s. She’s eaten with the man,” the victim’s mother, Andrea Womack, said. “She’s fed him, and he turned on her and killed her in a vicious way.”
Womack was said to be a talented basketball player. Her family said her male friend opened fire on her after the two played a pickup game that she won. The victim’s family added that there was trash talk during the game.
“But this is so senseless,” Pastor John Delley said. “You become embarrassed basically because a female beat you in basketball.”
Womack’s family said the suspect shot Womack multiple times after he went home and returned to the park. He is said to have dropped off his children and brother at home before returning to the park.
“Detectives are still working the case,” Kristin Lowman of Dallas PD said. “No one is in custody at this time. They’ve been working it since Monday night trying to find justice for Miss Womack.”
“My prayer is that justice be served,” Delley added. “That he is found or that he will give up or turn himself in.”
“If you know where he is, where his whereabouts are, please turn him in,” the victim’s mother said. “Help the family out. We’re hurting.”
