DALLAS (1080 KRLD) - A 79-year-old woman was shot and killed Thursday night in South Dallas.

Police say someone drove down Meyers Street, a few blocks from Fair Park, about 11:00 p.m. Thursday and fired several shots through the walls of a house.

The woman was inside the house and was hit. She was taken to Baylor Hospital, where she died.

Dallas police homicide and crime scene investigators spent much of the night at the house. They have not identified a motive or made any arrests.

Police say the shooter may have been aiming for the house, but the 79-year old was not the target.

Family members say the woman lived at the house with her adult daughter.

No one else was hurt.
