PORTLAND, Texas - Police are investigating the weekend shooting of two teenage women that left one dead and one wounded in a coastal South Texas park.

Portland police Chief Randy Wright told the Corpus Christi Caller-Times that the motive for the attack on 19-year-old Mollie Olgin of Ingleside and 18-year-old Mary Chapa of Sinton was unknown.

Olgin was dead on the scene while Chapa was listed in serious but stable condition at a hospital. Police say both were shot in the head.

Wright says a resident living near the park reported hearing two loud bangs just before midnight Friday, but thought it was firecrackers. Visitors to the park discovered the women Saturday in tall grass below an observation deck in Violet Andrews Park. Portland is about seven miles north of Corpus Christi.
