PHOENIX — The Phoenix Police Department is investigating a homicide after a woman was shot to death on Friday night.
Around 10 p.m., officers responded to the area of 40th Avenue and Indian School Road and found a woman with gunshot wounds, police said.
The victim, later identified as Cleopatra Morton, died as a result of her injuries.
"Cleopatra was a mother, a sister, a caring person." Kobe Morton said.
Morton was a mother of five and her family has set up a GoFundMe to help with funeral costs.
Her children said Cleopatra was fun-loving, always there to put a smile on her family's faces.
"She was so goofy," Auzia Morton, Cleopatra's daughter, said. "She was friendly with anybody like I can't see anyone having a problem with her."
The Phoenix police are still investigating the events that led up to the shooting.
