Gas Station Shooter Speaks Out

HOUSTON (KPRC) - The woman accused of shooting and killing a man during an argument at a southeast Houston gas station held a news conference Tuesday afternoon.

Shanequia McDonald was soft spoken and stood by community activist Quanell X as she explained why she shot and killed a man in a gas station parking lot.

"I just went to the gas station to get gas. I didn't go to hurt or harm anyone and I was just protecting myself from what happened," McDonald said.

The deadly shooting happened Sunday night at a gas station on Cullen Boulevard in southeast Houston. McDonald says she was pumping gas when a man, identified as 58-year-old Louis Daniels, started making sexual advances towards her.

The advances, McDonald says, then became violent and he was armed with a knife.

Seconds later, video surveillance shows McDonald opened her trunk, grabbed her rifle and opened fire. Bullets hit the ground and ricocheted, hitting Daniels.

Before leaving the gas station, the video shows McDonald topping off her tank and snapping a picture of the man. Quanell X says McDonald took the picture to prove Daniels had a knife.

"His behavior on videotape shows he was a man begging for the graveyard," Quanell X said.
