Officers found the woman, 35, bleeding and unresponsive. They rushed her to the hospital, but she was pronounced dead by 4:31 a.m.
The victim did not have any identification on her, so she is currently listed as Jane Doe.
According to Chief Inspector Scott Small, the only items found at the scene include a set of car keys. There were no shell casings or ballistic evidence found near the woman.
Authorities believe at least five bullets have been discharged on the scene as several homes found along the street had bullet holes.
