Woman fatally shot in head while driving in Atlanta

ATLANTA, Georgia (AP) – Police say a 24-year-old woman has died after she being shot at least twice in the head while driving in southwest Atlanta.

Atlanta police Maj. Adam Lee III tells news outlets that officers responding to a report of a car fire Thursday morning found the woman behind the steering wheel of a vehicle wedged between trees and shrubbery.

Lee says the unidentified victim still had her foot on the accelerator, causing her wheels to spin and produce smoke. She was pronounced dead at a hospital.

Police found nearly 30 shell casing near the scene, but investigators aren’t sure if some of those casings are from an earlier incident on the street.

Police do not have any suspects in custody. It’s unclear if the victim was the target.
