INDIANAPOLIS — Indianapolis police are trying to figure out who shot a woman before she was in a car crash on the near northeast side and later died of her injuries.

The Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department said officers went to the 2700 block of Baltimore Avenue at around 4 p.m. Saturday for a vehicle crash.

When officers arrived, they found a woman in a car who was in critical condition. She was taken to an area hospital and later died. 

After further inspection of the woman's injuries, IMPD said officers learned she had been shot. 

Homicide detectives launched an investigation and the Indianapolis-Marion County Forensic Services Agency responded to help identify and collect potential forensic evidence. 

The Marion County Coroner's Office identified the deceased as 18-year-old Kianna Mimms. The coroner said she died from a gunshot wound.
