The woman's 8-month-old baby girl, who was also in the car, was discovered alive. Sharita Brooks, 30, was found in a parked vehicle with at least one gunshot wound at the 1600 block of Claudine Drive. The infant appeared to be uninjured but was taken to a hospital for a routine examination. It was not immediately clear if the child had been reunited with family members. “We have a 30-year-old woman, we have no ties to that immediate vicinity there, we're not sure why she was in that area to begin with,” said St. Louis County Police Officer Tracy Panus. The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports Sharita Brooks lived on the 1000 block of Pennsylvania Avenue in University City, about 12 miles away from the crime scene. The shooting is being investigated as a homicide.
