New Haven Police say they had no new information on the death of a Danbury woman early Wednesday morning in their city.
Her mother says she was at the wrong place at the wrong time. A gunman shot and killed the 20-year-old nursing student from Danbury while she was driving early Wednesday in New Haven. Ashley Armstrong had gone to New Haven to visit a friend.
She was shot in the head shortly before 12:20 a.m. Wednesday.
Armstrong attended Danbury High School for three years, before enrolling at the Alternative Center for Excellence, where she graduated in 2009. Family members said Armstrong was about to begin her second year at Naugatuck Valley Community College. She was working as a certified nursing assistant at the Laurel Ridge Health Care Center in Ridgefield.
The gunman is still at large.
Some tweets point to the young woman's death being a case of mistaken identity.
Danbury School Superintendent Dr. Sal Pascarella says the school will help students who are upset. Pascarella says they have a good support system in place for times like this.
Armstrong's funeral is Monday at the Victory Christian Center in Danbury.
