Police went into the home and found Bush on the floor with multiple gunshots. Wounds. She was pronounced dead at the scene.
Ming was also taken to the hospital. There, she told healthcare workers that she murdered Bush. Ming said she took away the gun from Bush and shot the victim in the head because she had killed Ming’s dog, according to KWTX.
