18-year-old killed in double shooting believed to have been murdered by her boyfriend who was out on bond, HCSO says



A teenager is now being remembered as a hardworking, kind-hearted, down-to-earth girl who cared a lot about her family after her life was taken on Monday night.

Redha Sayed was an 18-year-old pharmacy technician who had just started college, her brother told KPRC 2.

Redha was killed by gunfire Monday night on Backenberry Lane and Constitution Lane near Friendswood in a double shooting that also injured her older sister.

“I see a young lady get out of a vehicle. She walks up to the car, and she opens the door and she’s having a conversation with whoever is in the driver’s side of that car. It appeared to me that they knew each other, and they were having a small argument,” a neighbor who didn’t want to be identified told KPRC 2′s Cathy Hernandez.

Late Tuesday, the Harris County Sheriff’s Office identified the gunman as 19-year-old Walker Porretto, who they said was Redha’s boyfriend.

As authorities moved in to arrest him just before 7 a.m. Tuesday in a Willis grocery store parking lot, more than 70 miles from the shooting, the Montgomery County Sheriff’s Office said he shot himself inside his car.

He later died at the hospital.
