Woman shot to death near Flamingo and Maryland Pkwy

The woman, identified as a black woman in her 20s, suffered a gunshot wound to the back of the head, McGrath said.

Homicide detectives are working to determine who shot the woman in a parking lot near 1050 E. Flamingo Road about 8:45 p.m.

Police say the woman may be in her 20's, and was found with several "Dollar Tree" shopping bags.

The Dollar Tree has useful surveillance video that police will look more into Sunday night and Monday. McGrath surmised she might have been waiting for somebody. Investigators don't believe there was a robbery, because the woman still had her purse, wallet and phone, police said. Her identity was not immediately released pending family notification.
