A Texas woman who just last year was named a Rookie Teacher of the Year was shot dead, along with her dog, while she was saving her friend from a domestic disturbance, police said.

Houston Police Chief Ed Gonzalez wrote on X, the site formerly known as Twitter, that Shantavia Reddick, 26, went to her friend’s home Saturday morning to intervene in an ongoing domestic disturbance. Reddick, who had her dog with her, was making contact with her friend when she was shot multiple times by her friend’s boyfriend Dimitri Humphrey, Gonzalez said. Humphrey also shot her dog. Both Reddick and her dog were killed, Gonzalez said.

“Reddick saved her friend’s life, giving her own,” Gonzalez said.

The girlfriend was uninjured and Humphrey remains on the run, according to Gonzalez. Humphrey fled the scene in a white Jeep Wrangler, with a Texas license plate of TFN-4278, Gonzalez said.

Reddick’s death has left her students and co-workers reeling. She was a third grade teacher at Smith Elementary School, which is part of the Spring Independent School District in Houston. Reddick was named a Rookie Teacher of the Year by the district at the end of the 2021-22 school year.
