ELLICOTT CITY, Md. (AP) -- Howard County authorities are investigating the death of a woman found in her car with multiple gunshot wounds.
Howard County Police say the 47-year-old woman was found dead in Columbia on Saturday morning. Police say they arrived on the scene after receiving a 911 call from a person who reported seeing a woman who appeared to be injured in a car parked in the 9600 block of Basket Ring Road.
