Authorities say the shooting happened around 8:30 p.m. Wednesday in the northern end of the city. At least five gunshots struck the driver’s side of the van, causing the female driver to lose control and crash into a building.

The woman was pronounced dead at 9 p.m. Her five passengers, including two women in their 20s, and two girls and one boy between the ages of 2 and 6, were also injured in the crash.

Police say the five passengers have been hospitalized in stable condition.
