Gabriella Gonzalez, 26, was with her boyfriend, 22-year-old Harold Thompson, on Wednesday when he tried to put her in a chokehold, according to an arrest warrant affidavit. She had returned the night before from Colorado, where she had gone to get an abortion.

“It is believed that the suspect was the father of the child,” the affidavit said. “The suspect did not want (Gonzalez) to get an abortion.”

Surveillance video from the parking lot shows Gonzalez “shrugs him off,” police said, and the two continue walking. Thompson then pulls out a gun and shoots Gonzalez in the head. She falls to the ground and Thompson shoots her multiple times before running away, the affidavit said.

Thompson was arrested later Wednesday and is being held in the Dallas County Jail without bond. Court records did not list an attorney who could speak on his behalf.

Gonzalez’s sister was at the scene and heard the shooting, police said. Another witness saw Thompson try to choke Gonzalez but couldn’t call police because she did not have her cell phone.

At the time of the shooting, Thompson had been charged with assault of a family member, who accused him of choking her in March.

It's sad enough that she had to travel to another state for health care, but to lose her life over it is heartbreaking. I'm worried that Texas will see this man as a hero.

Some people who are pro-life will view him as a hero in Texas. Even though he murdered her in cold blood. Sounds like he has a history of abusing her, so she was smart not to bring a child into the world with him.
Even if she wanted to adopt the child to another couple, the state would offer the violent father parenting rights or full custody.
I fear Gov. Abbott will offer him a pardon.
