Stokes said the woman was in the 700 block of Newtowne Drive dropping her friend off when she was shot. It’s unclear exactly what time the shooting took place.

Police suspect she was shot by one person, Stokes said, though the department was not ready to provide a description Monday morning.

Officers responded to Newtowne Drive after learning about the shooting and canvassed the area, Stokes said. They were unable to located any suspects and Stokes couldn’t say Monday morning whether they found shell casings.

“We’re going to be reviewing video footage and speaking to potential witnesses,” Stokes said.
