Two teenage girls in a relationship were found with gunshot wounds to the head in a south Texas park, with one of them dying from her injuries, media reports say. Police were searching for the gunman.

Mollie Judith Olgin, 19, and Mary Christine Chapa, 18, were found in knee-deep grass in a park in Portland by a couple early Saturday, the Corpus Christi Caller Times said, citing Portland Police Chief Randy Wright.

Olgin, of Flour Bluff, died; Chapa, of Sinton, was rushed to a hospital where she had surgery and was in serious but stable condition on Sunday.


Friends told local NBC affiliate, kristv.com, that the girls were a couple and had been together five months.

It’s not clear if the girls’ sexuality played any role in the shootings. Wright told the newspaper on Saturday that police had no motive.

“This particular case, it does have some of the earmarks of a targeted attack,” he told kristv.com on Sunday. “We’ll know more about that as we go forward in the investigation.”

No arrests had been made as of Monday, kristv.com reported. Three calls placed to Wright by msnbc.com on Monday seeking further information were not immediately returned.

Bullet casings were found next to the women, though police said they didn’t find a gun. A resident living nearby reported hearing two loud bangs Friday before midnight but believed they were from firecrackers, according to the newspaper.

Investigators think the girls walked with the assailant or assailants down a trail into the grass. But the “tall grass didn’t allow any identifiable footprints,” Wright told the newspaper.

Friends of the girls gathered at a local high school on Sunday. Olgin’s roommate, Samantha Garrett, told kristv.com that the fun-loving couple hadn’t gotten any negative response to their relationship and could not think of why anyone would want to harm them.

Wright told kristv.com that extra patrols were being added to area parks. Portland is just north of Corpus Christi, on the Gulf of Mexico.
