Police were investigating a fatal shooting in Kansas City, Kan., late Saturday that left a woman in her 20s dead.

Officers responding to reports of a shooting found the woman's body about 11 p.m. inside a vehicle in the 1900 block of North 41st Terrace, which is near Parallel Parkway and Interstate 635.

The shooting was reported by a neighbor who said she heard a scream followed by at least two gunshots.

The vehicle carrying the injured woman rolled part of the way down a hill through the neighborhood and came to rest in a driveway, where it was found still running, with three doors left open, another neighbor said.

Investigators brought a police dog to track possible assailants, but the dog lost the scent, according to a message Kansas City, Kan., Police Chief Terry Zeigler posted on Twitter.

The name of the woman was not immediately released while police identify her and notify family.

Police did not release information about possible suspects.

Anyone with information about the homicide is asked to call the TIPS Hotline at 816-474-8477.
