RICHMOND, VA (WWBT) - More than a year later, Richmond police are still searching for the suspect in connection with killing a woman during a burglary in the Brookland Park neighborhood.

The victim, 57-year-old Karon Williams, died Sunday, Jan. 15, 2017, at the hospital.

Police say Williams was at her home in the 3100 block of Cliff Avenue when a family member heard loud noises around 6 a.m. Sunday. When she went to see what it was, she was "struck by a bullet which entered through a window," according to police.

Williams was taken to the hospital where she died at 5:14 p.m.

"The motive is still unclear as to why Ms. Williams' home was targeted," said Det. Joseph Fultz. "We need the community's assistance with any information to bring closure to Ms. Williams' family. They wish to find out who is responsible for this terrible crime."

If you have any information about this shooting, call Crime Stoppers at 804-780-1000.
