A woman has been shot dead after beating a man in a basketball game.

Emergency services were called to the scene where they found 21-year-old Asia Womack lying in the street, suffering from multiple gunshot wounds.

She was rushed to hospital but sadly later died.

The slaying has shocked the local community in Dallas, Texas, and left the girl’s family reeling.

According to Andrea Womack, the victim’s mom, Asia was killed after playing basketball at a local park.

Andrea said it started after Asia, who was a gifted player, beating a male friend in a lighthearted game.

“That should be a friend of Asia’s. She ate with the man,” Andrea said. “She fed him, and he turned on her and viciously killed her.”

Her family have said it was a pickup game at the local park, playing against the man who shot her.

Pastor John Delley said: “You’re basically embarrassed because a woman beat you in basketball.”

The family have said the suspected shooter took his children and brother home and then came back to the park to shoot Asia five times.

A spokesperson for Dallas Police said: “On October 3, 2022, at approximately 7: 40 pm, Dallas Police were called to a shooting in the 4100 block of Hamilton Avenue.

“The preliminary investigation shows when officers arrived they found Asia Womack, 21, on the sidewalk with multiple gunshot wounds.

“Dallas Fire-Rescue responded and took Womack to an area hospital where she died. The investigation is ongoing and is documented under case number 180113-2022.”

They have said so far no arrests have been made.
