PORTLAND, Texas (AP) — Friends and supporters of a South Texas couple gathered in a Gulf shore park where they were shot in a usually quiet Texas Coastal Bend community.
They gathered Friday evening at Violet Andrews Park in Portland, about seven miles north of Corpus Christi, one week after Mollie Olgin was shot dead. Police say the 19-year-old Ingleside woman was killed and 18-year-old Mary Kristene Chapa was wounded in a shooting in the park June 23.
Many of those friends and supporters had gathered earlier Friday at a memorial service for Olgin.
Police describe the suspected gunman as a 5-foot-8-inch, 140-pound white male in his 20s with dark hair.
Police say they haven't determined a motive, and Police Chief Randy Wright has said there's no evidence suggesting the women's relationship was involved.
