Why security escorted the shooter, described as a woman believed to be in her 30s, out of the venue is unclear. But what authorities are saying is that she came back to the club around closing time and fired twice in the air and as many as six times through the club’s glass windows.
Fortunately, the victim is expected to live and was listed as being in stable condition.
The alleged shooter was apprehended by an officer who was in the area working an extra job. According to Click2Houston, the officer observed the woman traveling down Main Street in a truck, then into a parking lot, where he was able to apprehend her when she abandoned her vehicle and attempted to flee on foot.
She remains in custody with charges pending.
