LONG BEACH, Calif. (AP) - Long Beach police say a mother was shot and killed after stepping out of an apartment to grab her child's diaper bag.
Police spokeswoman Nancy Pratt says it's unclear whether 23-year-old Jazzmine Wash was the intended target or was just a bystander when she was shot Thursday morning.
Investigators are looking for a motive. No arrests have been made or suspects identified.
Police say Wash had dropped off her 3-year-old child at a relative's apartment at about 6:20 a.m. and was returning to her car to get the diaper bag when she was shot.
Officers arrived to find her lying in the courtyard of the apartment complex with multiple gunshot wounds to her upper body. Paramedics pronounced her dead at the scene.
