Police say three women had spent a night out on the town and were sitting in a car when an SUV pulled up and someone inside opened fire.
A 28-year-old woman who was sitting in the back seat was shot multiple times. She was declared dead on arrival at a local hospital. The other women were uninjured.

“It was around 10 something, close 11 o’clock,” Williams told WWJ’s Mike Campbell. “We didn’t know anything actually because we were in the house and it scared us because the blinds was closed but it just sounded like it was right out here. When you hear a gunshot, we don’t peek out the window, we hit the floor. And I count heads when we finish to make sure everybody’s OK.”
Police are now searching for the suspect, described as a black male driving a 2003 or 2004 black GMC Yukon.
