After months of threats from her husband, a Richardson mother of two was killed Sunday in a case of domestic violence. Hanan Seid, 26, was shot repeatedly outside the apartment complex she moved to in order to escape her abusive husband, according to KDFW-TV (Fox 4).
Seid's family and friends say 36-year-old Ahmed Abdela had threatened his wife with a gun and a knife repeatedly in the six months since the couple separated.
Seid was shot Sunday afternoon as she and a friend were returning to her apartment. Police say Abdela was waiting in the parking lot with a gun.
As the friend returned to his car, he heard shots, he said, and saw Abdela standing over his estranged wife with a gun. Abdela then drove away, police said, firing at Seid's friend. The friend was unharmed.
Sgt. Kevin Perlich with the Richardson Police Department said Abdela called authorities from a Starbucks about an hour after the shooting and "calmly told them he killed his wife and wanted to turn himself in."
