A woman who was found with gunshot wounds in a car outside a Humber Bay Shores condominium last weekend has died of her injuries.

Police have identified the victim as 24-year-old Veronika Mrhova of Toronto.

Officers responded to a building a 33 Shore Breeze Drive just before 7 a.m. last Sunday after receiving several calls for the sound of gunshots. Upon arrival, police located a white Mercedes Benz that appeared to have been involved in some kind of collision. Inside they found a woman suffering from a gunshot wound.

A large number of shell casings were also found at the scene.

Police say two people were last seen fleeing the area in a dark-coloured SUV going east on Lake Shore Boulevard.

Mrhova becomes the ninth homicide of the year.
