A 47-year-old Columbus woman was shot to death Saturday night on Forsyth Street.
It is the second homicide of the year in Columbus.
According to police, Marvine Bailey was killed during a drive-by shooting at 7:53 p.m. Nobody else was reported hurt.
Muscogee County Deputy Coroner Charles Newton said the woman was pronounced dead by a doctor at Midtown Medical Center at 8:19 p.m.
Newton said the body will be sent to Atlanta for an autopsy.
Newton said the woman was shot in the chest. He believes that is the only wound but will wait for the autopsy report to find out for sure.
On Sunday, the victim's mother, Sallie Bailey, said, "Everybody loved my daughter. I mean everyone. She was this very loving person and I can't understand why anybody would do something like this."
The mother said her daughter was a cook for Houlihan's restaurant. She was the mother of three and also a grandmother. She said her daughter was walking across the yard going from one house to another when she was shot.
"I just hope the police can find who did this and do it fast," she said.
The first homicide victim of the year was a Fort Mitchell, Ala. man Troy Saunders, who was shot outside the Super 8 motel on Warm Springs Road early Friday morning.
