An Oak Grove woman was murdered in Nashville Friday morning.
The Tennessean reports 43-year old Dalia Gutierrez-Sanchez, who worked as a Riverbend Prison correctional officer, was shot to death early Friday in the parking lot of the Longwood Apartments on Wallace Road where she also maintained a residence.
The shooting reportedly happened soon after she parked her vehicle, with Nashville Police saying robbery appears to be the motive since her purse was taken. The suspect was last seen fleeing on foot and a detailed suspect description was still being put together.
Fox Channel 17 reports Ms. Gutierrez-Sanchez worked at the prison facility since 2006 and it wasn’t clear if her job had anything to do with her being targeted.
She ran an unsuccessful race for Oak Grove City Council two years ago.
Nashville Police saying anyone with information on the incident can report it to their Crime Stoppers branch at 74-Crime.
