Police say a 23-year-old woman died from the shooting. A 26-year-old man was treated and released from Erie County Medical Center.

The witness who called 911 said she heard three gunshots and a car speed off around 3 a.m. She then looked outside and saw a car with its door open that apparently hit another vehicle.

Another eyewitness saw the deceased victim in a nearby driveway.
