Cassandra Nickcole Damper, 25, has been charged with tampering/fabricating evidence after she was accused of accidentally shooting a man in the Museum District, Sunday, April 1, 2018.
A woman accused of accidentally shooting a man in the head in front of a Museum District gas station will have her case referred to a grand jury.
Cassandra Nickcole Damper, 25, is charged with tampering/fabricating evidence after she allegedly shot a man who was in the car with her at a Valero gas station, on Southmore and Almeda.
The incident appeared to involve young people “playing with guns,” said Houston police Detective John Roberts.
Officers rushed to the gas station around 2:30 a.m. in response to a call for shots fired. When they arrived, police found three people in their 20s in a white car in the parking lot.
One of them, a man who police have not identified, had been shot in the head. He was taken to Ben Taub Hospital in critical condition.
Under questioning, the other two people in the car told police they’d been handling two guns they thought were unloaded. Damper told police that she was playing with the weapons when one of them went off, police said.
While she was in police custody, Damper tried to wipe off any gunshot residue that might have been on her, police said.
She was arrested at the scene.
