Teen lesbian couple found shot in Texas park; one girl dies

PORTLAND, Texas -- Two teenage girls in a relationship were found with gunshot wounds to the head in a south Texas park, with one of them dying from her injuries, media reports say. Police were searching for the gunman.

Mollie Judith Olgin, 19, and Mary Christine Chapa, 18, were found in knee-deep grass in a park in Portland by a couple early Saturday, the Corpus Christi Caller Times said, citing Portland Police Chief Randy Wright.

Olgin, of Flour Bluff, died; Chapa, of Sinton, was rushed to a hospital where she had surgery and was in serious but stable condition on Sunday.

Friends told local NBC affiliate, kristv.com, that the girls were a couple and had been together five months.

It's not clear if the girls' sexuality played any role in the shootings. Wright told the newspaper on Saturday that police had no motive.
