Forty eight year old Angela Grayson was standing near the corner of Burnet and Forest Avenue in front of a shopping center when shots rang out.  Witnesses say that the woman waits for a bus along the street every day and was in her daily routine when she was hit by the stray bullet.  She stumbled across Forest Avenue and collapsed in a yard across from the shopping center.

The woman was transported to the hospital where she was later pronounced dead.
