NOW: Crime Stoppers Crime of the Week: Family seeks answers in woman’s 2018 shooting death

MILWAUKEE (CBS 58) -- A heartbreaking case of a Milwaukee woman killed because she was in the wrong place at the wrong time. Her case is still unsolved and Milwaukee Crime Stoppers needs you to come forward with information. 

Around 2 p.m. on Aug. 8, 2018, Courtney Jones, 23, was dropping off her son at his father's house. She was sitting in her car in front of the house on North 35th and Clarke, when a group of suspects came from a gangway and started shooting. 

One bullet hit Jones and killed the young mother of two almost instantly. 

The suspects were shooting at other people in the area and hit Jones by mistake. Afterwards, they ran off and left little evidence behind. 

Jones' sister says she was a nurse who would do anything for anyone. She found out about her sister's death on Facebook Live. 

"We just want answers," said Courtisha Triblett, the victim's sister. "Anybody that know anything, we are at the point where we are begging, please, please, please come forward."
