UPDATE: Coroner identifies 20-year-old woman shot inside KFC on northwest side Saturday
INDIANAPOLIS, Ind.– A woman shot during a dispute at a Kentucky Fried Chicken (KFC) restaurant on the northwest side Saturday has died.
The 20-year-old woman who was later identified as Quiana Toussaint was shot just after 5:30 p.m. as she worked at the restaurant in the 7200 block of North Michigan Road. She was found in the doorway of the entrance with a gunshot wound. Toussaint was transported to the hospital in critical condition and died Tuesday.
Her death at this time is being investigated as a death investigation and non-criminal homicide, which usually indicates the incident was accidental or self defense. Police say the shooting was not random.
The Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department (IMPD) and the Marion County Prosecutor’s Office will meet to discuss any potential criminal charges.
Toussaint is the sixth victim of fatal shootings in the last five days in Indianapolis.
On Monday, four victims of violence over the weekend were identified.
