Boston police have identified the woman who was fatally shot last week in Roslindale as a 42-year-old from South Easton.

Alicia Heywood was found suffering from a gunshot wound Thursday afternoon and was later pronounced dead at a local hospital, police said Sunday.

The department said officers responded to a report of a person shot around 1:18 p.m. on Thursday near Corinth Street and Birch Street, where they found Heywood.

A department spokesman told the Boston Globe that the shooting was most likely not a random attack. No arrest has been made so far. 

The investigation into Heywood’s death is ongoing. Police are asking anyone with information to call Boston Police Homicide Detectives at 617-343-4470.
