A 19-year-old Chinese student died after being shot at multiple times while waiting at a red light, officials told ABC15.

On Saturday just before 3 p.m. two cars collided near the intersection of Broadway Road and McClintock Drive.

Yue Jiang, who was driving a Mercedes, was hit while waiting at a red light by Holly Davis, 32, police said. 

Jiang's male passenger and friend walked out of the Mercedes to assess the damage when he saw Davis had a gun. 

The Tempe Police Department told ABC15 Davis walked to the driver side of Jiang's vehicle and shot multiple times through the window. 

Jiang lost control of her vehicle because of her injuries and collided with a third car that was carrying five passengers. 

The 19-year-old passed away from her injuries at the hospital, Tempe police confirmed. 

Police tracked down Davis after she fled from the scene. She was located in a Mesa home where police said the woman was not remorseful, not cooperating with police and would not admit to the shooting. 

The woman was positively identified after witnesses took down Davis' license plate which matched the car description that was given to police. 

Jiang's passenger sustained minor injuries. The five passengers who were injured are family members, including a pregnant woman and three children. They did not sustain any serious injuries, but were taken to the hospital as a precaution. 

Tempe Police say Davis was charged with premeditated first-degree murder, aggravated assault with a deadly weapon and disorderly conduct with a deadly weapon.
