• The 21-year-old had five gunshot wounds and was left to die on sidewalk
  • Cameron Hogg was charged with murder for the woman's death on Oct. 3
  • Both were good friends before the "senseless" incident, victim's family said

A man was arrested for allegedly shooting a woman to death after losing to her in a basketball game in Dallas, Texas. Cameron Hogg was arrested Thursday in connection with the murder of Asia Womack, 21.

"On October 20, 2022, Dallas Police arrested Cameron Hogg, 31, and charged him with Murder," the Dallas Police Department said in an update.

Asia's family said she was friends with Hogg and had played a game of basketball on Oct. 3 before her death. The slain woman defeated Hogg while playing at T.G. Terry Park, the victim's mother Andrea Womack told the Dallas Morning News.

Following the game, Hogg dropped his children and his brother home before returning to the park to find Asia, and reportedly shot her five times on Hamilton Avenue near the park, leaving her to die on the sidewalk.

Officers were called to the scene at around 7:40 p.m. and found Asia with multiple gunshot wounds on the sidewalk. She was taken to the hospital but succumbed to her injuries.

Dallas police announced on Oct. 11 that a warrant was issued for Hogg. Officials did not reveal details about the events that led to his arrest.

"We're taking it kind of hard because it was senseless," Asia's aunt, Juanita Smith, previously told NBC 5 about her death. "I just don't understand why you kill somebody over a basketball game."

Andrea said Hogg was someone her daughter trusted and was friends with.

"She took calls from him when he was in jail and would buy him whatever he needed," Andrea told the Dallas Morning News. "She called him a brother."

Asia's family said her daughter spoke about being a police officer in the future but was killed over a game before doing all that she wanted to do.

"There were things she wanted to do and accomplish, but unfortunately, this happened, and those choices went with her," her aunt, Brandy Wickware, told the outlet. "But for her to be the age she was, and to have as many dreams as she had, that shows the kind of life she lived."
