BALTIMORE (WJZ) -- Baltimore City police are asking for the public's help to catch a killer they say is responsible for an innocent woman's death.

George Solis has the latest details on the investigation.

Police put out new pictures of the suspect they say gunned down 41-year-old Latrina Ashburne. WJZ also got reaction from neighbors hoping for justice.

Baltimore City police are asking people to take a hard look at new pictures pulled of the suspect from video police tell WJZ was recorded moments after a woman was killed in cold blood off Rosalin Avenue.

"He has a particular limp," said TJ Smith.

Neighbors say Ashburne was a church-going woman who kept to herself.

"I tried to comfort her while she was laying there," said a neighbor. "To try to keep her alert and everything."

Police say Ashburne was killed early Friday morning as she made her way to her car, fatally shot as she attempted to run from the gunman.

"We don't have a motive in this case. We don't know why this took place and it's absolutely concerning," Smith said.

According to our media partner, the Baltimore Sun, Ashburne was also a teacher's aide at Francis Scott Key Elementary.

Meanwhile, as a community waits for answers in this senseless killing, a memorial for the victim continues to grow.

Police and the community are hopeful these new, more detailed pictures will lead to justice.

"This is a woman you want in your community and some coward guns her down at 7:30 in the morning," Smith said.

Ashburne was taken to the hospital, where she was pronounced dead.

Anyone with information is asked to call police or Metro Crime Stoppers.
