"We have a really large area that we are covering in terms of trying to examine as well as located evidence," Smiley said on Thursday.
A white Chevrolet Impala on the scene can be seen riddled with bullets. Police said the car crashed into a utility pole, but aren't sure if the car was in motion when the shots rang out. Many of the shells casings were concentrated near the intersection of 8th and Breckinridge Streets, and the car targeted crashed into a utility pole a block away.
Police said both victims were in the car when they were shot.
The person who was killed was a woman known to people who showed up at the crime scene.
"She was a great mother and a loving caring person," Nikeshia Malone said of the victim. "It's just unbelievable I don't understand why."
Malone's niece is one of the victim's eight children. Malone said the woman riding in the car's name was Nachan Henderson.
The Jefferson County Coroner's Office confirmed that the victim was Nachan Henderson, 40, on Sunday afternoon. She died at 4:11 p.m. on Thursday from gunshot wounds, Deputy Coroner Jeff Wheeler said in a release.
