Johnson City police reported Tuesday that a woman died after being shot in the face late Monday night while sitting in her car and her infant son lying in the back seat.

Rebekah Thompson, 22, was reportedly waiting on a friend in a parking lot at 1008 John Exum Parkway just before 9:30 p.m., when police said a black male wearing a red and black hooded sweatshirt approached her vehicle then fled the scene in a black vehicle with dark tinted windows.

Thompson was pronounced dead at a local hospital, the report said. Police did not provide a make or model of the suspect's getaway car. The child has been placed in state protective services.

Anyone with information on this homicide is asked to call (423) 434-6166 or text an anonymous tip to 847411.
