Man charged in robbery of 3 women, fatal shooting of 1 in NW Houston
HOUSTON (KTRK) -- One of three suspects wanted in the fatal shooting of an Austin woman during a drug deal has been charged with capital murder.
Antwone Jermaine Betters is accused in the death of Camille Ross, 24, of Austin. Police say Ross and two other females, all from the Austin area, met with three male suspects to purchase marijuana in the 200 block of Rosamond in northwest Houston at around 7:50pm on June 6. The suspects then produced weapons and demanded the females' money and cell phones.
When the victim gave her cell phone and purse to the suspects, one of them shot her in the chest. Ross was pronounced dead at the scene. The other two females were not injured. The suspects then fled the scene.
The suspects, described only as one black male and two Hispanic males, were last seen in a black Dodge quad-cab pickup truck.
According to police, further information was developed that identified Betters as a suspect in this case. Betters, 24, is not in custody. He is believed to have relatives in the Waco area.
Anyone with information on the whereabouts of Betters or on the identities of the other wanted suspects is urged to contact the HPD Homicide Division at 713-308-3600 or Crime Stoppers at 713-222-TIPS.
