A 35-year-old woman who had been shot was found dead Tuesday inside a black SUV that crashed on an offramp from the southbound Long Beach (710) Freeway in Long Beach.
Officers sent to the Anaheim Street offramp about 2:30 a.m. found Mercedes Mingo of Los Angeles dead at the scene behind the wheel of the SUV, according to the California Highway Patrol.
Mingo had suffered at least one gunshot wound to her upper body, according to Fox11, which reported that the SUV she was driving had Nevada license plates.
There was no immediate information available on a possible suspect in the shooting. It was unclear whether the woman died from the gunshot wound or the resulting crash.
