Woman Shot Fatally in Overnight SUV Hijack Attempt

By  | 

A woman is dead of a gunshot wound to the head after what police say was a carjacking attempt that turned deadly today near downtown Dallas.

The incident happened in the predawn hours at an intersection just off Interstate 30 north of Fair Park.

Police say a couple was in an SUV when three gunmen approached and demanded their vehicle. Investigators say the husband tried to speed away from the men -- but his wife was shot and wounded in the process.

The man stopped and called 911, and the woman was taken to nearby Baylor University Medical Center, where she died.

There are no identities and no arrests.
