Texas man allegedly shoots woman to death in rage after she beats him at basketball

A 21-year-old woman was shot and killed on a sidewalk on the south side of Dallas last week after an argument at a pickup basketball game went horribly wrong.

Asia Womack (pictured above) was found badly injured last Monday night on Hamilton Avenue in Texas City. She had been playing pickup basketball with friends at TG Terry Park when she was shot. According to Fox 4she was “only a few steps from her home” when she was hit and was found there bleeding to death.

Paramedics rushed to the scene and took her to the hospital. Sadly, Womack was pronounced dead at the hospital late Monday night. Now, in the week since the tragedy, Dallas police have begun to piece together what happened in the horrific incident.

According to police, Womack was a well-known athlete in the area. She had been a star player on the women’s basketball team at James Madison High School in the last few years. On Monday, she was playing a pickup game with friends when the game turned into a bitter argument.

A news release from the Dallas Police Department claims the alleged shooter — who has since been identified by police as 31 Cameron Hogg (above, bottom center) — apparently got into some kind of altercation with Womack in the park after losing to her. Hogg is upset about the loss and reportedly drove his children and brother home before returning to the park alone.

When he came back, Fox 4 first reported late last week that he allegedly shot Asia five times. He then fled the scene before first responders arrived. Police say surveillance camera footage in the area allegedly captured Hogg’s car driving away from the scene.

From Sunday evening per Room 12, Hogg is still on the run. The police have already issued a warrant for his arrest. DPD spokesperson Christine Lowman told Fox 4 about the study:

“Detectives are still working on the case. No one is in custody at this time. They have been working on it since Monday night trying to find justice for Miss Womack.”

Asia’s mother also spoke to the news outlet about the senseless tragedy. Andrea Womack explained how Asia had known the alleged shooter well before things went horribly wrong last week:

“This was supposed to be a friend of Asia. She has eaten with the man. She has fed him, and he turned on her and killed her in a vicious way.”

Local priest John Delley summed up the dire situation in the simplest – and most heartbreaking – way:

“This is so pointless. You’re basically embarrassed because a woman beat you at basketball.”

So gloomy.

Now Asia’s grieving family are desperate for justice after her murder. The deceased woman’s aunt, Juanita Smithtold NBC 5 News (below):

“I believe in forgiveness, but justice must be served.”

We very much agree with that.

According to Fox 4, Crime Stoppers is now offering a $5,000 reward for information leading to Hogg’s whereabouts and arrest. Police are asking witnesses to call 214-373-TIPS (8477) with leads.

Such a terrible situation. And over a basketball game?? Sickly. We send our condolences to Asia’s friends, family and loved ones.
