Sugar Land Police arrested Sheldon Magee (44, Houston) on Sunday for the murder of his former girlfriend Kiva Herrera (38, Houston) after a domestic dispute turned into a deadly shooting.
According to reports from SLPD, officers responded to a shooting at the Courtyard by Marriott, 16740 Creekbend Drive, on August 11 at 1:15 p.m. Witnesses reported seeing an altercation between Magee and Herrera in the parking lot of the hotel followed by the sounds of gunshots.
When police arrived, Herrera was found with a gunshot wound to the head. First-responders performed CPR, but she was later pronounced dead at the scene.
One of the first officers to arrive at the hotel located Magee near the parking lot holding a firearm. An exchange of gunfire occurred between Magee and the responding officer. Neither man was injured during the firefight, and Magee was taken into custody.
Police believe the shooting resulted from a domestic disturbance. Herrera had recently ended a relationship with Magee. He located her in the parking lot, where they argued just before he killed her.
Magee was later charged with murder and attempted murder of a peace officer. He remains in the Fort Bend County Jail.
