Chelsie Lynn Kirschten, of Brandon, Mississippi, was shot dead in her vehicle while she sat at a red light. The motive for the brutal killing is believed random as nothing was taken during the incident.

Kirschten, who was only 23, was sitting in a car with a female friend just before midnight Thursday in Jackson, when a black man walked up to the driver’s side of the car and opened fire, striking Kirschten in the back. The unidentified man then fled the scene.

Kirschten drove down the street after she was shot, police said. Her car came to a stop at Fortification Street near the Interstate 55 exit. She died at the scene, police said.

Police said the shooting appears to be random. Nothing was stolen and the shot was fired through the closed window of Kirschten’s white Pontiac G6. The gunman didn’t say anything and walked away after the shooting, Cmdr. Tyree Jones said.

“We’re still in the preliminary stages. We’re not sure if they know one another or if there is any type of affiliation, but based on preliminary indications, this just seems to be possibly an individual just walked up to the vehicle and fired a shot,” Jones said. source

Jones said the passenger in Kirschten’s car described the shooter as a black man wearing dark-colored clothing, possibly with a hood.

Kirschten had just started taking classes this week, and according to a coworker, had planned to leave her job at Twin Peaks in Jackson in two weeks.

    I dont know her, from the sound of it neither do you. Why assume it was drugs? Could it have been a gang initiation thing? Could it have been a racial attack? Think before you speak……
