A motorist was shot to death early Sunday after an altercation that spilled onto a street in Saginaw, Saginaw police said.

The victim was driving a car when another vehicle pulled up near her vehicle and opened fire, authorities said.

The name of the victim had not been released.

Sunday afternoon, police released a surveillance video snapshot of a woman in hopes of identifying and interviewing her as to her possible involvement in the shooting. The photograph came from a Saginaw store surveillance camera taken several minutes before the shooting.

"We are still trying to piece it all together," said Saginaw Police Officer Damon Ing. "I wouldn't call it road rage. Apparently, there was some type of an altercation. Everybody got into a vehicle and drove off. The next thing we know there's a shooting."

The shooting occurred about 12:05 a.m. Sunday in the 200 block of East Bailey Boswell Road in Saginaw.

Police arrived shortly afterward and found a gunshot victim. She was taken to John Peter Smith Hospital in Fort Worth where she later died.

Police said they believe one shot was fired by an assailant in a vehicle that had driven up near the victim's car.

The shooting occurred about five miles from the store in an area with large fields and no homes in the immediate vicinity, Ing said.

"Evidence was found at the scene," Ing said, but he declined to comment on it.

A witness told authorities about an altercation, and that led back to the store, which police did not identify.

"Right now, we just want to find her," Ing said of the woman in the surveillance snapshot. "Once we talk to her, we might have more on what happened."

Anyone with information should call Saginaw police at 817-232-0311.
