Kim Phok was found shot in her vehicle on Interstate 70 in Denver on the morning of April 20. She died at the hospital on Friday. Police still don’t know who shot her or why.

Police found 61-year-old Phok in in a white 2009 Acura MDX. Police say she complained that she was experiencing “stomach pains.” That’s when they discovered that she had been shot multiple times.

Investigators are reviewing video from businesses nearby and traffic cameras on the highway.

“Despite this, the motive for the shooting is not known and an offender has not been identified at this point,” investigators said Tuesday morning.

Police said they have been asked whether there was a bias-motivated component to the shooting of the Asian woman.
