Woman Shot Dead In Downtown San Jose Identified

SAN JOSE (CBS SF) -- A woman who was shot dead early Saturday morning while riding in a car in downtown San Jose has been identified as 19-year-old Kimberly Joyce Estrada, according to police.

Estrada was shot around 1:20 a.m. in the area of South Second and East San Salvador streets, Sgt. Jason Dwyer said.

She was transported to Regional Medical Center where she was pronounced dead, Dwyer said.

An investigation revealed that Estrada and a 21-year-old man were driving in the area of South Third and East San Salvador streets when she was shot by someone outside the car, the sergeant said.

The driver, who was not hit, stopped the car and called 911, Dwyer said.

Dwyer said on Saturday that no suspects have yet been identified or arrested. It is unclear why the shooting took place and whether it was gang-related, he said.

No one else was injured in the shooting.

Police are continuing to investigate the incident.

The homicide marks the city's 30th of the year.
