MILWAUKEE — The Milwaukee Police Department said it is investigating a deadly shooting that happened Saturday morning.

The Milwaukee County Medical Examiner's Office identified the victim as 51-year-old Marshell M. Harris.

Officials responded to the area of 39th and W. Hadley shortly before 8 a.m. for reports of a shooting. Police discovered that a 51-year-old woman had been driving when a suspect in another vehicle shot her.

The woman sustained fatal injuries and was pronounced dead on the scene.

MPD said it is seeking unknown suspects and is continuing to investigate the incident.

Residents in the area say they're shocked this woman would be killed.

"She was cool. She used to feed our cats. She had good conversations. She used to make the area around her better. Anybody could talk to her," said a man who knew her.

He asked not to be identified.

Several people told TMJ4 News there have been several shootings over the past week near where the woman died.
