19-year-old Tamika Brooks, the mother of a three-year-old daughter, was shot and killed early Wednesday while sitting with her boyfriend in a Ford Contour. It happened on Oakfield near McNichols in Detroit.

Brooks' boyfriend, 21-year-old Julian Bogan, ran from the car. Police say the gunman chased the boyfriend and shot him in the face. That boyfriend is in critical condition. The shooter then set the car on fire. That car burned with Brooks' body inside.

Police are looking for the shooter and trying to determine why this couple was shot.

Brooks' family says she was an innocent victim.

"I want to know who killed my daughter, that's all I want to know. Find out who killed my daughter, who did that horrible thing to my daughter," said Martin Brooks, her father.

"They did not have to do her like that," said mother Renee Brooks.

    The Port Authority of New York and New Jersey is holding its monthly board meeting, two days after it heard from a panel on what it needs to do to improve its accountability and efficiency and restore public trust.
    The Port Authority of New York and New Jersey could rescind a $1-a-year lease for a park-and-ride lot near the Lincoln Tunnel. The agency's chief of real estate and development told a committee Wednesday that it should change a deal made in 2012. Published reports have alleged that former Port Authority chairman David Samson voted to approve the lease even though his law firm did business with New Jersey Transit, which operates the park-and-ride lot.
