Police are investigating a shooting that left a 23-year-old woman dead inside a car in an apartment complex in Pembroke Pines Thursday morning.

The discovery was made after officers responded to the French Villas complex located near the intersection of Northwest 79th Avenue and 6th Street just after 6 a.m.

Chopper 6 flew over the scene, where a black car could be seen with multiple bullet holes in it. Pembroke Pines Police said a black woman was found dead in the car. Her name wasn't released.

"We do believe the victim is likely to have been targeted," Pembroke Pines Police Capt. Al Xiques said. "It does not appear to be a random act of violence."

Investigators do not know if it was a robbery or domestic incident gone wrong. Officials say they are searching for a suspect, but did not release additional details on who they are looking for.

Anyone with information is asked to call Pembroke Pines Police or Broward CrimeStoppers.
