It is believed that the shooting is the result of an attempted robbery, as detectives located a paper bag containing cash near where the male victim was shot. Witnesses state that a black male, wearing all black clothing, came from behind the apartments shooting at the male victim. The female victim was getting her child from her vehicle and was struck by gunfire. It is not believed that she was the target of the shooting. The child is uninjured.
