Police: Woman struck by stray bullet on her front porch dies
ST. PETERSBURG (AP) — Police in Florida say a woman struck by a stray bullet while eating breakfast on her front porch has died.
St. Petersburg police spokeswoman Yolanda Fernandez says 38-year-old Aesha Kendrick was eating breakfast on her porch Sunday morning when a man across the street shot at a passing vehicle multiple times. News outlets report that one bullet struck Kendrick and she later died at a hospital.
Police say 29-year-old Jamel Walker was arrested and charged with second-degree murder and attempted murder. It’s unclear if Walker has a lawyer who could comment.
