LAFAYETTE — A woman was shot to death late Sunday outside a Walmart on Commerce Drive, police say.
Officers with the Lafayette Police Department found the victim wounded while they responded about 8:40 p.m. to the store, 4205 Commerce Drive, according to Lafayette police Lt. Justin Hartman.
The victim was pronounced dead at the scene. She was identified as Casey Lewis, 33, according to the Tippecanoe County Coroner's Office. An autopsy has been scheduled for Tuesday.
Police say Lewis lived in Remington but the coroner's office said its records showed she was homeless.
When police arrived, the suspect had already fled the scene on foot, Hartman said. He was still at large early Monday.
The suspect was described as an adult Hispanic male wearing a white hite, a red or orange shirt, a gray hoodie and dark khaki shorts.
Police haven't said exactly what happened leading up to the shooting but said it was targeted. An investigation is ongoing.
Hartman said anyone with more information should call the Lafayette Police Department at 765-807-1200 or the WeTip Hotline at 800-78-CRIME.
