MAGNA, Utah – A 25-year-old woman was shot and killed while inside a house in Magna Sunday morning.

Later Sunday police identified the deceased as 25-year-old Paige Espinoza of Murray.

Unified Police say they believe there was a drive-by or walk-by shooting around 5:15 a.m. near  8300 West Mix Ave.

Investigators say one room on the southeast side was specifically targeted from outside the home.

Officers say multiple bullet holes in the wall show the path the bullets took before hitting and killing Espinoza. Three other people were inside the house at the time, one of whom called 911 to report the shooting.

Police said Espinoza was visiting the home and is not a resident.

Unified Police say the house has previously been connected to gang activities, however, investigators say they’re not sure if this is a gang-related incident at this time.

At this time police do not have a description of the suspect(s).

Police are still investigating the incident and Fox 13 will update this story as more details emerge.
