Texas man shoots girlfriend dead after returning from another state after having an abortion | wayne dupree

During a confrontation in a Dallas parking lot, a guy who didn’t want his girlfriend to have an abortion shot and killed her, authorities say. On Friday, he was incarcerated for murder. According to an affidavit for a warrant for her arrest, Gabriella Gonzalez, 26, was with her boyfriend, Harold Thompson, 22, on Wednesday when he tried to choke her. She had returned from Colorado the night before after having gone there to have an abortion.

In September 2021, Texas will ban abortions after six weeks of pregnancy, but since Roe v. Wade was canceled last summer, nearly all abortions in Texas were banned except in medical emergencies.

According to the affidavit, according to the AP, “the suspect was believed to be the child’s father.” The suspect objected to Gonzalez having an abortion. Gonzalez is “unaware of it,” authorities say, as seen in surveillance footage from the parking lot as the two walk.

Then, Thompson pulls out a gun and shoots Gonzalez once in the head. The affidavit claimed that once she hit the ground, Thompson shot her several times before fleeing. Investigators say Gonzalez’s sister was present at the scene and heard the gunshots. Although he saw Thompson attempt to choke Gonzalez, a second witness was unable to notify police because she did not have her phone.

Thompson was facing assault charges at the time of the shooting after a relative said he strangled her in March. The March affidavit does not specifically identify Gonzalez as the victim of the assault, but it does indicate that the woman told police that Thompson “beat her several times throughout their relationship” and that Thompson told police the woman was pregnant with his child at the time. According to the affidavit, the woman “repeated that she was afraid of the suspect because he had threatened to harm her family and children.”

Later Wednesday, Thompson was arrested and is currently being held without bond in the Dallas County Jail.
