Drive-by shooting claims life of Flint woman

Posted: Updated:

(12/10/12) - Monday night, shots ring out in the 600 Block of East Flint Park Boulevard, leaving one woman dead and police searching for answers.

Police tell ABC12 48-year-old Vena Fant was the victim of a drive-by shooting and the bullets fired went into the north side home, killing her.

Family members say she was a loving, kind-hearted woman.

At the scene, Lorenzo Wilkerson said, "She was a great lady. She took the place of one of my aunties, and I loved her like an auntie. I'm just really hurt about the situation, but she was great, she was good with my kids, loved my kids, loved my family, she's going to be missed a lot."

A man was arrested the same night Fant was killed, but no charges have been filed against him at this point.

Police say he and Fant knew each other, but didn't say how.
