The Tarrant County Sheriff's Office said the shooting happened on Tuesday at around 5:45 p.m. at Chatmon's job in the 1900 block of Golden Heights Road.

According to authorities, the two appeared to have been in a relationship that ended last weekend. Authorities said Walker and Chatmon were involved in an argument over the phone on Tuesday before the shooting.

Authorities said Walker later showed up at Chatmon's job and continued arguing with her before, ultimately, pulling out a gun and shooting her in the chest. He then ran away.
