A Dallas woman tragically lost her life at a young age over a harmless game of basketball. The woman was shot to death by a sore-loser friend after she beat him in a basketball pickup game, according to her family.
Asia Womack was gunned down Monday after shooting hoops with the man at T.G. Terry Park near her home, Fox 4 News reported.
“This was supposed to be a friend of Asia’s,” the slain woman’s mom, Andrea Womack, told the outlet. “She’s eaten with the man, she’s fed him, and he turned on her and killed her in a vicious way.”
The family added that Womack had beaten the man playing a pickup game of basketball, and there was some trash talk during the game. The suspect took his kids and brother home before returning and shooting Asia.
Asia, who suffered several gunshot wounds, was rushed to a hospital, where she was pronounced dead.
Asia’s aunt, Juanita Smith, said told NBC DFW that the family is “taking it kind of hard because it was senseless,” adding, “I just don’t understand why you kill somebody over a basketball game.”
Her sister Alia Womack told the station: “[It’s] hard because it’s my only sister.”
Police said they’re still investigating the slaying, and no suspects have been taken into custody.
