Police in Fairfax County, Virginia, say a woman was found dead with a gunshot wound inside a car in the Inova Mount Vernon Hospital parking lot last week.

The body of 33-year-old Brenda Ochoa Guerrero was found in the passenger side of her car in the hospital parking lot around 10:45 a.m. on April 13, after someone called police to report seeing an unconscious woman in a car.

An autopsy later confirmed Ochoa Guerrero had suffered a gunshot wound to her upper body.

For now, police are calling it a death investigation. They have released video footage of two men they are calling persons of interest, according to Lt. James Curry.

The two men were seen parking Ochoa Guerrero’s car in the hospital lot at 1:11 a.m. — several hours before her body was discovered.

Police said the men were picked up by an SUV that drove out of the area.

Anyone with information is asked to call police at 703-246-7800, option 2. Tips can also be submitted anonymously through Crime Solvers by phone by calling 1-866-411-TIPS (866-411-8477).

The area surrounding the hospital is largely residential, and police are asking residents there to review their home-security video and share any relevant footage.
