HOUSTON (AP) — Houston police are investigating the death of a woman who was hit and killed by a stray bullet at a 15-year-old’s birthday party. A police spokesman says 24-year-old Dixie Mendez was pronounced dead at a friend’s home around 1 a.m. Sunday.
Witnesses say there were about 50 people at the party when someone outside started shooting. They say Mendez was asleep in a back room when she was killed. Investigators say people were arguing outside the house before the shooting started.
No arrests have been made, and police are investigating.
