July 28—Atlanta police Tuesday were trying to determine who fired an apparently stray bullet that struck and killed an 81-year-old woman as she sat on her porch playing cards late Monday.

Channel 2 Action News reported Mildred Martin was on the screened porch of her home on Proctor Street off Joseph Lowery Boulevard shortly after 11 p.m. when shots rang out.

One of the bullets came through the porch’s screen and hit Martin in the back.

Investigators found shell casings about 200 yards from Martin’s home, but have no leads on who fired the shots, or a motive for the shooting, Channel 2 reported.
