Grandmother shot and killed in a drive-by shooting

- A drive-by shooting left a grandmother dead Monday morning.  Police say Brenda Reyna was reportedly killed while she sleeping. Homicide detectives are still investigating the drive-by shooting that killed this 62-year old grandmother and special needs teacher.

It was around 3:15 a.m. this morning when police were called to the home on the 700 block of East Sunnyside Street. When they arrived, they found Brenda Reyna, mother of three and grandmother, shot in her bedroom. She was still alive and was transported to LBJ hospital.  She passed away at the hospital. There were three other adults and two  young children inside the home at the time. Authorities believe Reyna was not the intended target, and that the shooting was possibly targeted at one of her teen sons.
