The woman was reportedly shot dead at the gate in front of her home. A frantic voice note making the rounds on social media suggests that she was shot dead by men who were on a crime spree, committing at least two robberies in the area, before climaxing in a deadly encounter with the woman.

According to the voice note, the men reportedly escaped in a "black station wagon Subaru with foreign licence plates".
