OPELIKA, Ala. (AP) - Authorities have identified a woman who was shot and killed inside a moving car on an Alabama highway.

Lee County Coroner Bill Harris says in a news release that authorities identified the woman as 36-year-old Lorena Dawn Leasure of Brunswick, Georgia.

Leasure was a passenger in a vehicle with three other occupants when she was shot Monday. Police believe she was shot by another occupant of the vehicle as it was traveling on Interstate 85.

Officials have arrested 21-year-old Larry Moore on a murder charge in connection with the shooting. It’s unclear if Moore has an attorney.
