Carmen Cai-Yi Lee

DORAVILLE, Ga. (CBS46) -- Doraville Police are investigating the case of a woman found dead in her car Saturday. 

An officer saw a vehicle stopped in the wall lane of Peachtree Industrial Boulevard southbound just south of Tilly Mill Road. 

As the officer went to check the vehicle, a woman was found dead in the driver's seat from what appeared to be a gunshot wound.

On Monday, authorities identified the victim to be Carmen Cai-Yi Lee. 

Police told CBS46 News that they believe the initial shooting in Gwinnett stemmed from a one-sided road rage incident, but it is unclear as to why Lee was targeted a short distance down the road.

After further investigation, it has been determined that more than one shot was fired into Lee’s vehicle and police say two rounds were fired into Lee’s vehicle. One of those rounds struck Carmen Lee in the head causing her death.
