The woman has been identified by her family as Shantrelle Monroe.

According to police, Monroe was found by three high school students on a walking trail in the 900 block of Lake Drive Court in DeKalb County. Police believe she was lured to the wooded trail in the Mainstreet subdivision and shot in broad daylight.

"We think she was lured to that location, we don't think it's a random incident," said Rod Bryant with DeKalb County Police. "Think it's going to be possibly isolated because of evidence that we found during the investigation. We believe that whoever went back there knew where they were going."

Right now police are investigating this as a homicide. 

We will continue to update this story as more details come into the newsroom.
