Woman found shot on boat

SEABROOK â€" Police are investigating a shooting death on a boat.

Police received several 9-1-1 calls about 7:30 p.m. Monday regarding a woman who apparently shot herself.

Police found Kemah resident Shawnee Simmons, 44, in a boat docked near the 100 block of Bath, with a gunshot wound to the head. Officers also found a .32-caliber semiautomatic pistol, which Sgt. Sean Wright said investigators believed caused the wound.

An ambulance took Simmons to St. John’s Hospital, where she was pronounced dead at 8:22 p.m. Monday.

Wright said investigators were not certain Tuesday whether the shot occurred while the boat was docked or at sea.

“That’s one of the things we’re trying to determine right now â€" the exact location of the shooting,” he said.

Police questioned the woman’s husband, who was apparently on board at the time of the shooting, but he was released and has not been charged with any crimes.

Wright said he hoped the Harris County Medical Examiner’s Office would complete her autopsy today to determine whether the wound was self-inflicted.

my condolences to the families involved.
