We now know the identity of the woman killed over the weekend in Colorado Springs, but cops are still looking for her killers. The victim is being identified as 35-year-old Susana Pelayo Perez.
Perez was shot in the parking lot of the Shannon Glen Apartments on North Murray, just south of Platte early Sunday morning, and later died at the hospital from her wounds.
Perez was sitting in the passenger side of a parked car when she was approached and shot. She doesn't live at the Shannon Glen Apartments, so now police are trying figure out why she was here in the first place.
Those who do live at the complex say it's just another scary situation that happens all too often. "I don't walk alone during the day in this neighborhood," says Kaykay, a resident at Shannon Glen Apartments.
Another resident says she also takes extra precautions while living there. "No I wasn't surprised," says Tina Mitchell, who has lived there for five years. "I lock my door, do everything else, try to stay inside as much as possible," says Mitchell.
Police have made no arrests in this case and need the public's help. They are looking for two white males believed to be in their early 30's. Both are described as bald with a short beard and mustache. Cops say they are driving a red or orange Jeep Cherokee.
If you have seen the suspects or that vehicle, or have any information about this murder, call Crime Stoppers at 634-STOP.
