(FOX3) — According to a Dallas County arrest warrant, a man is believed to have shot and killed his girlfriend after she allegedly traveled to another state for an abortion.

The incident occurred on Wednesday when Gabriella Gonzalez, 26, was found dead in a parking lot, prompting police to respond.

Surveillance footage reportedly shows Harold Lavance Thompson walking with Gonzalez just before the shooting.

While attempting to put her in a chokehold, she managed to escape before Thompson fired the fatal shot.

The court documents state that Thompson used a gun to shoot Gonzalez in the head, following which he fired multiple more shots while she was on the ground, before running away. According to witnesses, including Gonzalez’s sister, Thompson had attempted to strangle Gonzalez prior to the shooting.

According to the warrant, Thompson and Gonzalez were in a romantic relationship. Court documents also reveal that there was already a family violence strangulation warrant against Thompson from a March incident where Gonzalez was the victim.

Further investigation uncovered that Gonzalez had traveled to Colorado to undergo an abortion and had returned the night before. It is suspected that Thompson was the father of the child and did not want Gonzalez to have an abortion.

Thompson was arrested following the execution of a search warrant and refused to provide a statement.

He has been charged with murder and assault of a family/household member/impeding breath or circulation, as indicated by Dallas County Jail records.

During his initial court appearance on Thursday, Thompson was denied bail and was to be assigned a public defender, as per court records.

According to the police report, Gonzalez had three children from a previous relationship.
