A 33-year-old man is accused of shooting and killing a Hinton woman Thursday night, the Canadian County Sheriff’s Office reported.

Authorities said between 7 and 8 p.m. Thursday, Ramon Hector Martine Ontiveros shot and killed Paige Gomer, 28, on State Highway 37 and Karnes Road in rural Canadian County.

Hinton police arrested Ontiveros about 9 p.m. Thursday after he reportedly fled the scene of the shooting. While he was being transported to the Canadian County jail, officers said Ontiveros “made admissions he was responsible for firing a weapon which resulted in Gomer’s fatal gunshot wound,” according to a news release.

Ontiveros is being held on a murder complaint at the Canadian County jail.
