On Saturday at about 8 p.m., police were called to a house on Ridge Harbor Drive near Hiram Clark and Court Road.
The officers said that a woman in her twenties shot her mother and father after an argument. Police said the mother had died and the father was expected to survive.
The woman turned herself in at the Pearland Police Department. Police said her younger niece was in the car at the time of the shooting.
The family identified 58-year-old Nikita Broussard Johnson as the mother who was shot.
Raymond Broussard, brother of Nikita Broussard Johnson, explained, “She would do anything for anyone. If I needed something. She played a big role in our family.”
“Wherever she went, it was a good day for her,” said Lisa Doyle, sister of Nikita Broussard Johnson. “Everyone who met her enjoyed being around her. My sister wanted nothing, and she had no hard feelings for anyone.”
Nikita Broussard Johnson’s mother-in-law, Eva Johnson, said she is looking forward to retiring soon.
“She was talking about how she’s going to retire and the things she’s going to do and I wasn’t expecting that,” said Eva Johnson.
Shana Broussard, sister of Nikita Broussard Johnson, said they spent the day together on Saturday at a soccer match and went out to eat.
“It’s unbelievable,” said Shanna Broussard. “I’m so glad my last day was with her and I know she enjoyed it and we had such a good time.”
According to the family, Roderick Johnson was shot in the groin and leg and remains in the hospital.
“He’s going to get through this. We all will, but it’s going to take some time, recovery time and we’ll have to pray to the Lord to take care of us,” said Robert Johnson, Roderick Johnson’s father.
The family said the daughter accused of the shooting lives in the house with her parents.
