Everyone in the residence attempted to avoid being struck by bullets as they passed through the walls of the house.

Scott was shot. Her fiancé ran to her side finding her unresponsive.

Columbus police and Columbus Division of Fire medics arrived on scene and pronounced Scott dead at the scene from a gunshot wound.

Detectives have determined that two separate guns were used during the drive-by shooting. They obtained surveillance video from a residence in the neighborhood that revealed two vehicles driving past the scene at the time of the shooting.

The vehicles are described as a silver, 2-door Lexus 300 coupe and a white, 4-door Ford Explorer.

During the continuing investigation, several anonymous calls were received claiming that the shooting occurred due to a dispute between rival street gangs.
