Fox 9 reports that family members of a woman found dead in a vehicle in a St. Paul alley say she was being threatened after someone on Facebook said she witnessed a murder. Naressa Turner, 20, moved to Atlanta three months ago and returned for a visit last week, Fox 9 says.

Police got reports of shots fired at about 2:45 p.m., and arrived to find the vehicle in an alley in the 900 block of Reaney Avenue behind the Iglesia de Dios Rios de Agua Viva church, the Pioneer Press reports.

Police say the case would mark the 14th homicide in St. Paul this year.

Police had no suspects in custody. Investigators called for help for crowd control as a group of friends and family gathered and grew impatient as they waited for answers, WCCO reports:
