According to investigators, the incident started at 4:20 am last Friday, when Harris kicked in the front door of Robinson’s apartment in the 1800 block of Barker Cypress Road.
Harris entered the woman’s bedroom and fired at least six shots, killing Robinson, the report said KHOU 11. Her daughter Harmony, who was in bed with her mother, suffered chapped wounds on her jaw and shoulder and was taken to Texas Children’s Hospital for treatment. She is expected to recover.
Robinson’s four older children were unharmed. One of them, a 10-year-old girl, called relatives after the shooting.

Houston police inspector Michael Casso said that Robinson reported at least one domestic violence incident involving her ex-boyfriend to the police a month ago when he claimed to have attacked her.
Told Janet Robinson, Kimberly’s mother KHOU 11 that about a month and a half ago, her daughter decided she would not reconcile with Harris.
“I’m not going back to him. I’m not going back to this situation, “Mother Kimberly told her. “I think he really knew she meant it this time.”
Court records indicate that Kimberly had received a protection order against Harris in November 2019.
“When I think about it, she had lived in constant fear and didn’t want us to know,” said Kimberly’s mother.
