Sgt. L'Jean Mckneely Jr. said the shooting happened at Millner's home on Warfield Avenue near Marque Ann Drive around 9:15 p.m.

He added she was shot multiple times when a man fired into a group of people at her home and she later died at the hospital. He also said two other people were hit, but their injuries are not considered life-threatening.

The shooting remains under investigation.
