Authorities have released the name of a woman who had been fatally shot and was found lying in the street near West Columbia.
The Lexington County Coroner's Office identifies her as 43-year-old Paula Justice of West Columbia.
An autopsy shows she died from a gunshot wound to the upper body. But authorities still have not released a motive in the shooting, and no arrests have been made.
Justice was found late Wednesday night lying along Lumberjack Drive by two people working to repossess a vehicle in the area. The coroner says she died within minutes of being shot.
She was identified through fingerprints.
Sheriff James Metts is asking anyone who has information on what happened to contact Crimestoppers.
