Stella Montes Shot Dead
An Arizona woman driving with her husband and pregnant daughter has died after being shot by a hail of bullets in a possible road rage incident, Phoenix police confirmed on Friday.
Stella Montes, 38, was found injured in a vehicle that had crashed into a roadside wall on Thursday.
Behind the wheel of her white SUV with her husband and her eight-month pregnant daughter, Montes was rushed to a hospital but died from her injuries.
She ‘was shot by a person in another vehicle after a traffic altercation,’ police said.
A witness who lives near the crash site near Seventh Avenue and Beardsley Road in north Phoenix said she heard eight to 10 shots before the crash.
‘I felt my whole house vibrate when the van hit the wall,’ she said.
No description of the suspected gunman or the vehicle was immediately available.
Brooke Raspa, a woman who lives on the other side of the retaining wall where the crash occurred, told azfamily.com that the victim’s daughter was at the scene and believed it was road rage.
‘They honked at him to go, not realizing that it was no turn on red and then they decided to go around him and that angered him, apparently. So he drove by and probably emptied a whole clip,’ Raspa said.
‘This investigation is in the preliminary stages,’ police explained in a statement on Friday.
‘Detectives are working to determine more information about what led up to the incident.’
Investigators, along with a mobile command unit, were at the scene for some time, according to Fox 10.
Police say they do not have a vehicle or description of the suspect but acknowledged the report that Montes ‘was shot by a person in another vehicle after a traffic altercation.’
A GoFundMe account set up to raise funeral expenses for the family paid tribute to Montes.
‘Montes always had a big heart and old soul. Never fail to put a smile on your face no matter the circumstances. Always willing to put herself last, in order to help those she loved first. There was never a dull moment that was shared with her. ‘
