Authorities Thursday announced two arrests in connection with a North County gang shooting that killed a woman who happened to be passing by while driving home from church.
The suspects — a 24-year-old man and a 16-year-old boy — were involved in a dispute over graffiti when one of them allegedly opened fire in the 1900 block of East Grand Avenue in Escondido shortly after 9 p.m. March 7, according to police.
A stray bullet struck 55-year-old Catherine Kennedy in the head as she drove past the site of the gang dispute. Her silver Toyota Camry then veered off the roadway and crashed to a halt into a parked car.
Medics took the Escondido resident to Palomar Medical Center, where she was pronounced dead.
Authorities did not immediately release the suspects’ names.
