Woman shot multiple times in Clayton County drive-by shooting dies days later, police say

Police said they don't believe the shooting was random.

CLAYTON COUNTY, Ga. — A woman who was shot several times in a Clayton County drive-by shooting has died days later. According to a spokesperson with the Clayton County Police Department, Kasha Newton died late Thursday shortly before midnight.

“It’s actually still an ongoing investigation. We don't have any further leads. We're still following up with a lot of the leads that we have, and also trying to reach out to the public to see if they have any Ring cameras, any videos, or any witnesses that can give us any further information in reference to the case," Clayton County Police Capt. Chris Windley said.

A previous statement from the police department said officers found the 55-year-old lying between several cars in a driveway on Waggoner Place in Rex just after 7:30 p.m. Tuesday night. 

Newton was shot multiple times, police said. She was taken to the hospital in critical condition, but police said she later died.

“An autopsy is being done by the GBI, so we'll follow up to see exactly how many times she was shot and the actual cause of death in reference to the investigation," Windley said. 

At the time, investigators said there were still no arrests in connection to the deadly shooting, but officials told 11Alive's Dawn White on Friday they don't believe the shooting was random.

"I think this is going to be an isolated incident," Windley said. 

Investigators are still asking the public for information and are looking for surveillance video in the case.

"Like we always tell everybody, if you see something say something, so help us in reference to solving this case and getting a resolution to this case and close it up," he said.
