Houston police seek husband in fatal shooting of estranged wife, victim ambushed outside house


HOUSTON — Houston police are seeking the estranged husband of a woman who was fatally shot as she dropped off their son at her spouse's home.

Investigators say 44-year-old Armandina Leach died early Thursday at a Houston hospital.

Police say the woman was in a vehicle and leaving the couple's teenage son at the residence when she was ambushed. A Houston police statement says the attacker was hiding near some bushes, opened fire and then fled on foot.

Houston police say no warrant was immediately issued but that the victim's husband was the suspect in the slaying.

Authorities say the couple's son told officers that his parents are divorcing and that his mother recently moved out of the home.
