TEXARKANA, Texas — Police say a Northeast Texas woman has died after being struck by an apparent stray bullet in gunfire blamed on a fight involving about 20 juveniles.

A statement from police in Texarkana, Texas , says 23-year-old Kaitlin Lee was shot in the head and died Wednesday.

Police spokesman Shawn Vaughn says investigators don’t believe the Texarkana woman, who died at a hospital, was part of Tuesday night’s disturbance.

Police received a 911 call about juveniles fighting on a neighborhood street, shots fired and suspects fleeing. Officers were responding when a second 911 call came in about a woman found wounded in an alley about 150 feet from scene.

Vaughn says police aren’t sure Lee was nearby and that she was likely struck by a stray bullet.

No one has been arrested.
