The incident occurred on Sunday in St. Petersburg, Florida.
According to the Police in St. Petersburg, the victim identified as Aesha Kendrick- a mother of five- was sitting on her porch in Twin Brooks neighborhood- where she was having breakfast, when a man shot at a truck that was passing by.
Neighbors said they heard about five gunshots followed by screams.
A bullet struck Kendrick. The woman was later rushed to Bayfront Health St. Petersburg, where she later died, reports say.
