Officers administered first aid until an ambulance arrived, but the 35-year-old woman died later at a hospital.

Authorities say witnesses reported the woman was talking with a man in the parking lot before she was shot, then a man and woman in an SUV fled the scene.

A man identified as James Alvin Hill, 31, was taken into custody and is expected to be charged, according to police. Three others were also arrested.
