HOUSTON, TX - Houston Police are looking for two men who committed what officers call a "senseless" homicide Thursday night.

Investigators say the suspects robbed a woman at an apartment complex near Maplecrest Dr. and Beechnut Rd. early in the evening, taking her purse, cell phone and credit cards. Then, around 9:30 p.m., witnesses called 911 after the same men shot a different woman.

"She was just fixing to exit her vehicle. Witnesses say she was approached by two black males. They ran up, yanked the door open and shot her at least twice," said Sgt. Steven Murdock.

The victim died at the hospital. Officers say the suspects got away in a white, four-door sedan, but they don't have any other descriptions.
