Mollie Judith Olgin,19, was pronounced dead at the scene and her apparent girlfriend, 18-year-old Mary Christine Chapa, was hospitalized with a gunshot wound to the head.

Chapa was reportedly listed in serious but stable condition.

KZTV reports investigators believe they teens were shot around midnight on Friday. They were found about 9 hours later Saturday morning.

According to the Corpus Christi Caller-Times, police say the women likely walked with their attacker down a trail and into knee deep grass. This is where authorities believe they were shot with a large caliber handgun.

Friends of the women said the two had been dating for about five months, KZTV reports.

Investigators reportedly do not believe this was a random incident but have not named a potential motive.
