Little is known of the gunman who shot at Candice Elease Pinky five times outside the Chevron gas station on Richmond Avenue in West Houston on Thursday, Jan. 24. She was taken to Memorial Hermann Southwest Hospital.  Her condition is unknown.

Reporting on this was delayed due to misgendering and deadnaming by local news outlets.

Monica Roberts at TransGriot reported that the 24-year-old Black trans woman known as Pinky was chased Thursday morning through a busy Chevron station parking lot just after 11 AM CST. The gun-wielding miscreant shot at Pinky twice, cornered her by the front door of the gas station located on the corner of Beltway 8 and Richmond Ave in West Houston, and fired three shots at her at point blank range.

Roberts told the Dallas Voice the shooter was “approximately 5′ 8″ black male assailant wearing a gray hoodie [who] got away in a light colored SUV, possibly a Honda.”

The Facebook fundraiser to help her recover has ended but not before raising $12,700.

Trigger warning. Extreme violence.

Investigators have asked that anyone with information on the shooting call Crime Stoppers at 713-222-8477.
