NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WTVF) — A woman was shot and killed while in the passenger seat of an SUV early Sunday morning.

Metro Nashville police said 37-year-old Debbie Boone and her 14-year-old daughter previously walked from their apartment to a convenience store at Clarksville Pike and S. Hamilton Road. As the pair was leaving, Boone recognized a woman driving a GMC Yukon and asked for a ride home.

When the three were on their way back to the apartment, police said someone in a dark colored car began shooting at the Yukon at the intersection of Clarksville Pike and 26th Avenue N. around 2 a.m.

Boone was hit by the gunfire and later pronounced dead at Vanderbilt University Medical Center. Her daughter and the driver of the Yukon were not hurt.

Police are actively investigating the shooting and say it is not clear why someone shot at the Yukon.
