GREENSBORO, N.C. -- Katiria Webster says she woke up to flashing police lights outside her home on York Street.

"Police cars all down Gillespie Street,” Webster said. “All down here, roped off."

Just a few feet away from her home, police say 59-year-old Sharon Little was found shot in her car at about 4:45 a.m. Monday.

"Front of the car was damaged, the doors were open," Webster remembers.

"There was blood in the car,” said Capt. Mike Richey with the Greensboro Police Department. “She had a wound that indicated she'd been shot."

Little was taken to Moses Cone where she died.

Tire marks in a grassy field on Peachtree Street show where Little's car ran over a fire hydrant.

Police believe the shooting may have happened somewhere else.

"We believe she was shot at another location and drove her car until she lost consciousness and wrecked," Richey said.

Lisa Griffin also lives on York Street.

“I just walked up to the yellow tape and started crying," Griffin said.

Griffin didn't know the victim but says she still feels her family's pain.

"I don't know what happened to that lady,” she said. “I just know when I walked up, I started crying because I know that's somebody's mother, somebody's aunt, somebody's family member."

Anyone with information is asked to call Greensboro Crime Stoppers at (336) 373-1000.
