GREENSBORO — Police have released a photo of the suspect vehicle that was involved in a wreck that led to the fatal shooting of a Greensboro woman.

The vehicle has been described as a newer-model light blue Hyundai-type vehicle, according to a police news release.

Based on the surveillance footage and other information gathered during the investigation it is believed the vehicle is missing the factory hubcaps/wheel covers on both front tires. The vehicle was last seen leaving the area east on Patton Avenue shortly after the shooting took place.

Carolyn Rose Tiger, 26, was driving a vehicle with two children in it around 4:35 p.m. on March 3 when she got into what police call a "minor traffic accident" with the suspect vehicle near the intersection of South Elm-Eugene Street and Meadowview Drive.

Both cars went north on South Elm-Eugene Street to Patton Avenue, where the driver of the suspect vehicle tried to block Tiger, police said. The driver got out of his car, got a rifle from his trunk and then fired on Tiger's car as it tried to drive north on the street.

Tiger was hit by at least one bullet. Police found her vehicle crashed into a fence near South Elm-Eugene and Concord streets.

She was taken to Moses Cone Hospital, where she died, police said. The two children in the vehicle had minor injuries from the crash.

The suspect vehicle was last seen traveling east on Patton Avenue, according to witnesses. Police are investigating the shooting as a random act of violence.

Police ask anyone with information to call Crime Stoppers at 336-373-1000 or text the tip to 274637 with the keyword badboyz.
