OLIVETTE, Mo. (AP) - A woman has died after being caught in the crossfire of a rolling gun battle between people in two other cars on Interstate 170 in suburban St. Louis, police said.

The Major Case Squad of Greater St. Louis is investigating the Monday afternoon shooting. Officers were called to the area of I-170 and Olive Boulevard in Olivette for a report of two vehicles trading gunfire while traveling southbound, police said.

Arriving officers found a 46-year-old woman with gunshot wounds inside a third vehicle that had been hit by gunfire, police said. The woman was taken to a hospital, where she was pronounced dead.

Police said the two vehicles involved in the gun battle had already fled the area when police arrived.

The woman’s name was not immediately released, and no arrests had been reported by Tuesday morning.
