A 40-year-old woman was fatally shot Saturday night after confronting a group of men in a car about speeding through her west Mobile neighborhood, Mobile County District Attorney Ashley Rich said today.


Mobile police identified the woman as Wendy Fisher, who was shot in the chest by one of several gunshots fired at her, police spokeswoman Ashley Rains said.


Rains said that an “altercation” took place between Fisher and a group of men who were not known to her. Rich confirmed earlier reports that the confrontation involved speeding on Racine Avenue, a street that connects Overlook Road and Moffett Road and is frequently used as a shortcut by motorists. {snip}

According to Rains, the car involved was a dark gray or green Honda, Nissan Altima or similarly-styled vehicle occupied by three or possibly four black men. The car sped away from the scene after the shooting, Rains said.
