According to the Harris County Sheriff's Office, the gunman, who is not in custody, was down the street when an argument broke out, the television station reported. Chante Randel, the mother of the 22-year-old man who police believe is the shooter, said the disagreement was between two women over a $30 payment for a cake, KPRC reported.
Randel said her son fired his weapon to break up the fight, the television station reported.
"My prayers go out to her and her family and I'm praying for my son, too," Randel told KPRC. "She didn't deserve that. Nobody does."
Doctors have been unable to remove the bullet from Myles' head, KHOU reported.
"If it would have been a millimeter either way, I would have been dead or paralyzed," Myles told KPRC. "(Deputies) said I was the luckiest, unlucky person," victim Bethany Myles said.
Myles does not have health insurance. Her family has set up a GoFundMe page to help with medical bills.
