A shooting at a Quanah travel stop leaves one dead and another hospitalized.

The Texas Rangers are now investigating this incident.

A black female, who appeared to be the driver, was pronounced dead at the scene by a local Justice of the Peace and the male passenger was airlifted to University Medical Center in Lubbock.

Texas Highway Patrol’s Sergeant Dan Buesing said Hardeman County Sheriff’s Office received a 911 call around 8:00 a.m. Friday at the Love’s Travel Stop on 287 in Quanah saying help was needed.

Buesing said a handgun was found on the scene.

“Deputies arrived just a short time later, just a few minutes and were able to witness two subjects in the car in the front of Love’s that had apparent gunshot wounds and so at that point, EMS was called,” Buesing said.

Buesing said the car tags of a Dodge Charger the two were in are registered in Texas and they are working to find next of kin to notify them.

Deputies and troopers are still gathering information and witness statements.

The condition of the passenger who was flown to University Medical Center in Lubbock is still not known.
