RICHARDSON, Texas (AP) - Police are searching for a Garland man
in connection with a Sunday morning shooting in a church parking lot.

Police say Alveda Edwards, 43, of Richardson, was fatally shot.

Authorities say Tommy Edwards Jr., of Garland, and Alveda Edwards met in the parking lot of Greenville Avenue Church of Christ before services began to discuss their relationship.

Richardson police Sgt. Kevin Perlich said it wasn't immediately clear what the status of their relationship was.

He said the two were talking when Tommy Edwards, 46, pulled out a gun and shot at Alveda Edwards several times before fleeing the scene.

Alveda Edwards was pronounced dead at Parkland Memorial
Hospital.
