DETROIT – Police are still trying to identify a woman who was shot and killed during a four-part shooting spree in Detroit last weekend that “terrorized” the community.
A woman was fatally shot by a 19-year-old Detroit man accused of shooting and killing three people and injuring another person and a dog in a four-part shooting spree on Aug. 28. One woman who was shot and killed has yet to be identified.
The unidentified woman was found dead at around 5:30 a.m. in the area of Wyoming and Margareta avenues. Detroit police say the woman was killed by several gunshot wounds.
The woman is identified as standing 5 feet, 6 inches tall and weighing 165 pounds. She reportedly had brown eyes, a medium build and two long braids, and was wearing a white hooded sweatshirt and gray and black Nike sweatpants. It is unclear how old police believe the victim was.
A sketch of the unidentified victim can be seen above.
The woman was carrying a multicolored purse that contained a pair of green “New York” basketball shorts in it. Photos of the woman’s bag and the shorts can be found below.
Anyone with information about the woman or the four-part shooting spree is asked to contact Detroit police at 313-596-2260 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-Speak Up.
The 19-year-old accused of carrying out the shootings, identified as Dontae Smith, was charged Wednesday with three counts of first-degree murder, one count of assault with intent to murder, one count of animal cruelty and five felony firearm violations.
