Mollie Olgin was dead at the scene. Chapa is still alive, but in serious condition from a gunshot wound to the head. Cops admit they don't know much, so I would like to know why it isn't being investigated as a hate crime until they rule it out. It doesn't change the result, but it changes the reality if it applies. It may also change how the shooter(s) are found.Police in Texas are searching for an assailant who targeted a lesbian couple in a close-range shooting that left one woman dead and the other in the hospital, however authorities said it is not being investigated as a hate crime.Detectives are constructing a timeline of events, processing bullet casings found at the scene and are interviewing witnesses to understand what led up to the shootings of Mollie Olgin, 19, and Mary Kristene Chapa, 18, in the small town of Portland, Texas, which is located a few miles from Corpus Christi.
Whether someone was shooting two random girls or two lesbians is important, however. To the girls, the families and the people who want to know how something like this really just happened.
