Golden was leaving an afternoon checkup with her son, Keegan, when she had a verbal altercation with a woman in a Lexus parked next to her pickup truck, Montgomery County sheriff's Lt. Dan Norris said.
Witnesses said the woman repeatedly shot Golden, took the infant and sped away, hitting the dying mother as she screamed "my baby" and tried to reach into the Lexus, Norris said.
Witnesses also reported hearing as many as seven gunshots and said a man also was in the sky blue or light green Lexus, which was blood-stained on the driver's side, Norris said.
Investigators were processing evidence Tuesday night at one apartment in the complex that was searched, and they took away a vehicle parked in front. Photographs taken by news media at the scene indicate the vehicle was a light-colored Lexus.
The shooting happened just after 2 p.m. outside the Northwoods Pediatric Center in Spring, which is about 20 miles (30 kilometers) north of Houston.
Joshua Jesson said he was in the clinic with his girlfriend when he heard gunshots. He said he saw a Lexus next to the pickup truck, then later looked back and saw the car was gone and a woman lying in the spot where the Lexus had been parked.
"I thought she just passed out. Then somebody ran in here and said, 'Somebody got shot,'" he said.
The clinic is in an area thick with strip malls.
