MESA, Ariz. –
Mesa Police say an altercation between two groups of people apparently led to the fatal shooting of a 30-year-old woman whose body was found on the street near a home.
Sgt. Tony Landato says the woman was found dead in the street with at least one apparent gunshot wound around 3 a.m. Tuesday near University and Stapley.
One group is believed to have gathered at the home and at least two other individuals were in a vehicle.
A neighbor says he heard shots ring out and then a woman shouting for help.
“It was like seven shots.. a lady was screaming help, help, help — it was three times,” said Augustin Martin.
The victim’s mother identified her as 32-year-old Isha Baczynski and said she leaves behind two daughters aged 10 and 3.
