SAN ANTONIO (KTSA ) — The San Antonio Police Department now has a suspect in custody after a woman was hit by a car intentionally near downtown.

Pennie Gomez, 36, is now facing a charge of murder after her arrest Thursday, and she is also being charged with aggravated assault with a deadly weapon.

KSAT-TV reports 28-year-old Ashley Lopez was identified as the woman killed Wednesday night by the Bexar County Medical Examiner’s Office. Police say another woman was also hit by the car driven by Gomez, but she survived.

Investigators say Lopez was hit during a fight between a group of people, and they say Gomez drove her car into the crowd as it was going on. Witnesses told police they saw Gomez hit the people on purpose. The arrest affidavit for Gomez also sites cell phone footage that confirms what witnesses told police.

Gomez is accused of hitting the women, stopping the car, and then driving again, dragging the women for several feet.

Police say Gomez was also wanted on an unrelated charge.
