A strange shooting in west Phoenix over the weekend has left a 22-year-old woman dead and police scratching their heads.

About 2 a.m. yesterday, two women were driving home from a party in west Phoenix. The women got into an argument, Phoenix police say, and stopped the car at a tire store near 50th Avenue and McDowell Road.

While stopped, police say an unknown suspect pulled up next to the two women and asked if everything was alright. The girls said everything was fine, and pulled away from the man.

It was then that the women heard a "pop" -- police say the man fired a bullet through the back window of the victim's car, fatally wounding Alexcia Salsberry, who was riding in the passenger seat.

The suspect then took off.

The surviving woman got help from a bystander, who called police.

Police say the description of the suspect and his vehicle are vague. He's described as Hispanic, with a bald or shaved head. At the time of the shooting, he was wearing a light-colored t-shirt and he was driving an SUV. 

Anyone with any info about the shooting is asked to call Phoenix Police at 602-262-6141 or Silent Witness at 480- WITNESS. For Spanish call 480-TESTIGO

The Associated Press reported Wednesday that Packers CB Charles Woodson(notes) has been fined $10,000 for throwing a punch at Saints TE David Thomas(notes) in Green Bay's Week One victory over New Orleans. The fine has not been announced by the league or the team.The incident occurred in the third quarter of the Packers' 42-34 victory on Sept. 8. Woodson was blocked by Thomas on a running play and took exception to a push from Thomas after the tackle had been made by throwing an uppercut. Woodson was flagged for a personal foul but was not ejected."Yeah,  I threw a punch," Woodson admitted after the game. "Just got frustrated, the guy was holding me  a little longer than I wanted. Nothing was said about it, referee-wise,  quick enough, and I reacted. It is what it is, I guess."

PPD couldnt solve a crime, much less barely respond to one without shooting something or someone. PPD and its leadership are so fucked up....the basic moral of its Detectives is "call us when the public has a solid lead." Poor girl. She couldnt have been murdered in a worse place than Phoenix Arizona.

Thanks asshole Jack Harris.

The intersections down there have video cameras. Just a matter of time before they get the car and the driver.

The cops couldn't possibly be "baffled" and stupid. As the first 2 posters already assumed, I am willing to believe it had something to do what went wrong at the party, even if it things did not get out of hand there.

Just connect the dots, cops.

maybe the mexican killer guy hates annoying loud white broads who yell and argue at night? sometimes its as weird and simple as that. or maybe in his past love and sex life he tried to get laid by white broads and they always turn him down because he was a short fat mexican. so now he hates all white broads and shoots at them when its convenient to do so.

I'm sorry, this story doesn't add up. The witness is not telling the police everything she knows.

Yeah, it's a rare incident isolated strictly by race... You're a fucking moron.You're user name would indicate you harbor no empathy towards others, why don't you be consistent and true to yourself; shut the fuck up, and continue wallowing in apathy.
