Police have identified a young woman who was shot to death this weekend in Waterloo. Talasa Wright, 19, died from her injuries at a hospital. Police found Wright inside a car, near the intersection of Linn and Gable Streets, after responding to a “shots fired” call at 11 p.m. Friday.
Ann Henderson, who lives in the neighborhood, told KCRG-TV she was watching TV at the time of the gunfire. “There are a lot of kids in the neighborhood and when I heard a lot of noise, I just looked out my window and thought it was just kids,” Henderson said. “Next think I knew, I hear a bang…and then bang, bang, bang. After that, I hit the floor and I was done.”
Two other people were in the car with Wright, but they were not injured. Police have not made any arrests.
Anyone with information about the shooting is asked to contact Waterloo Police (319-291-4340) or Cedar Valley Crime Stoppers (855-300-8477).
