The victim, a 35-year-old woman whose identity remains undisclosed, suffered a gunshot wound to her right leg. The injuries sustained were not life-threatening, and she was transported to a nearby hospital for treatment.

HPD says Calhoun arrived at the residence to pick up her child. What began as a routine visit quickly escalated into a heated dispute. Calhoun allegedly resorted to using a firearm, shooting her own mother before leaving the scene. Law enforcement officers later located and apprehended her a few miles away from the site of the incident.


After consultation with the Harris County District Attorney’s Office, charges were formally filed against Calhoun, who now awaits proceedings in the Harris County Jail.
