EPD tells 14 News the woman was found alone. But it’s not clear who she was with earlier in the night.

Jews is believed to be from this area. EPD says they have had previous run-ins with her but nothing significant.

It was a passerby who called in the crash.

“Matter of fact, it wasn’t given a high priority due to - it just looked like a car ran off the roadway," stated Sgt. Nick Winsett. "When officers arrived, they obviously found our victim lying there. At the time, thought maybe she sustained injuries from the motor vehicle accident. The ambulance crew, fire department showed up, and started working on her, trying to help her. It wasn’t found out until later that she suffered from a gunshot wound.”

Hours after that, four people were injured in a shooting at Sidetrack Tavern.

Police are working to get surveillance video, specifically of the parking lot. If you have information in either case, call EPD.
