A mother from North Carolina was shot and killed while driving with her 5-year-old twins inside.
Brittany Hunt, 23, was driving her silver Chevrolet Malibu in Lumberton, N.C., at about 2:30 p.m. last Monday when she was shot, according to WBTW-TV.
She immediately lost control of the car and crashed into a canal.
Hunt was immediately taken to UNC Health Southeastern hospital, where she was pronounced dead.
Her 5-year-old twins and a 20-year-old man, all passengers in her car, suffered minor injuries from the crash.
A friend revealed how Hunt had a third child in addition to the twins. The other passenger has been since treated and released from the hospital.
Hunt was killed by the shooting, not the subsequent crash, according to the police report.
Police are currently interviewing witnesses.
There are no suspects and it is not clear if Hunt was the intended target of the shooting.
At this time, a motive is not known.
Authorities are asking anyone with information to call the Lumberton Police Department and talk to Detective Robert Nolley or Detective Layton Bartley at 910-671-3845.
