A woman was shot to death Monday night in one of two unrelated drive-by shootings, Phenix City police say.

The shootings occurred in a span of about four hours.

Police Capt. Darryl Williams said officers responded to a shooting at 1604 20th Avenue just before 9:20 p.m. Monday and found a woman suffering from a gunshot wound. Williams said the victim, whose identity is being withheld, was deceased at the scene.

The woman was pronounced dead by the Russell County Coroner’s Office at 11:40 p.m., Williams said.

Witnesses told police a vehicle was speeding away from the scene of the killing but could not give a vehicle description.

Police responded to a second shooting about 1:25 a.m. Tuesday.

Williams said a vehicle with unknown occupants fired multiple shots into a residence in the 1600 block of 13th Street. There were no injuries reported.

Anyone with information on either of the shootings should call Phenix City police at 334-298-0611.
