A north Mississippi woman has died after authorities say she was caught in the crossfire of a shooting.

WHBQ-TV reports 26-year-old Skyeesha Pige was shot in the head while driving home from church. She died after being taken to a Memphis, Tennessee, hospital.

Anfernee Harris and Dontarrius Hibbler are each charged with second-degree murder and aggravated assault. A judge denied bail to Hibbler because he was already on bail for 2018 aggravated assault charges. Harris remains jailed until he posts $300,000 bail. It’s unclear if either has a lawyer.

Ray Conley, Pige’s fiance, says he was mowing his lawn when a man arrived and began shooting at a second car. He says someone down the street started shooting.

Conley says a bullet hit Pige in the eye and she crashed into a car.
