INKSTER, Mich. (WJBK) -

Just before 12:30 Monday morning, Inkster Police say a woman was sitting in the passenger seat of a car in front of an abandoned house on Isabelle when someone drove by and opened fire.  The woman was killed.

The victim was holding a two-year-old baby when she was shot.  Thankfully the baby was not hurt, but for one mother the shooting was too close to home.

"It's very sad to hear because it could've been anybody," said Monique Pollard.  "I have small children myself and it's just horrible."

Police are not commenting on this story, but they did say they are looking for the driver of a black Chevy Cobalt with tinted windows.  Anyone with information is asked to call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-SPEAK-OUT or Inkster Police.
