BATON ROUGE - A 25-year-old woman died after being caught in the crossfire of a shootout in a parking lot Sunday morning.
Police said the victim, Christian Cobb, died Thursday after being shot a few days earlier. She was shot in the head, police said, and was being cared-for at an area hospital.
The shooting happened October 11 before 3 a.m. in the 10300 block of Airline Highway. Police said she was shot while trying to leave a parking lot where other people were shooting.
Police said the shooters are unknown.
