A Texas man has been arrested for allegedly shooting a 21-year-old woman to death after she beat him at basketball. Cameron Hogg, 31, has been charged with the murder of Asia Womack, which happened in Dallas on October 3, Fox 4 News reports.
- The basketball game got heated. According to Asia Womack’s family, she and Cameron Hogg were playing in a pickup game at T.G. Terry Park in South Dallas. After she won, there was an argument between the two over the match and Womack then left the scene.
- Hogg followed Womack to another location. Police say there, he confronted her before shooting her four times. She died of her injuries shortly after. Two weeks later, Cameron Hogg was arrested for the murder.
- Womack and Hogg were friends prior to the killing. Andrea Womack, Asia’s mother, told Fox 4 that her daughter knew the killer well. “He’d pull up to my house, pick her up. They’d ride together, eat food together, take his phone calls, give him money in jail, and you turn around and kill her?” Andrea said. “When I got that call, I was full of joy this morning. Hadn’t had joy in a while. But with him being captured, I am full of joy today.”
- Hogg was clearly angry about losing the game. According to court documents, Asia and a friend were watching football on a TV outside when Hogg drove over to confront her. However, instead of talking to her, he shot her twice in the chest with a handgun and continued firing twice more as she fell to the ground. He then got back in his truck and left the scene. However, a witness identified him in a line-up not long after.
- It was a “senseless” murder. Andrea couldn’t believe that Hogg would do something so extreme over such a petty issue. “It was senseless for him to kill his friend over a basketball game. Even over words,” she said. “Not the basketball game itself, but the words that were spoken after the game.”
- Cameron Hogg has a lengthy rap sheet. His charges date back more than 10 years and include offenses of aggravated assault, robbery, and family violence. He is currently being held at Dallas County jail without bond.
