Police have identified the 92-year-old woman killed by a bullet that entered her Bronx home through a first-floor window Tuesday evening.
The bullet came through a first floor window and it's unclear if it was a stray or intended for the house, law enforcement officials said. It appears some youths had been in a fight nearby, cops said.
“She said she was going to fix something to eat and she was going to sit down and watch her game shows,” Ms. Fields said. About 5 or 10 minutes later, Ms. Fields said, Ms. Mitchell called to say she had been shot," she told the paper.
Ms. Fields’s husband, John, said he drove Ms. Mitchell, a devout Catholic, to a nearby convent every Thanksgiving, where she prepared food she had purchased for the homeless, the Times said.
No arrests have been made.
