The search continued Monday for the shooter who opened fire on a woman's SUV early Saturday morning near Turner Field, killing her.  The family of 25-year-old Tiara Bogan-Jones tells  FOX 5 they don't think she was the intended target. 

"You shot my daughter in the face. I have to live with that," said father Robert Bogan, who had a message for whoever shot and killed his daughter, and hopes someone with information comes forward.  

Relatives said Bogan-Jones was driving in Southeast Atlanta with two friends in a vehicle, and had just picked up one individual. Atlanta Police said shortly before 1 a.m., a car pulled up next to the woman's SUV near the corner of Hank Aaron Drive and Milton Avenue, opened fire and struck the woman in the face.

Investigators said she crashed her SUV, causing it to flip over and trapping two passengers in the vehicle. Those two, a man and a woman, were rushed to Grady Memorial Hospital.  Police say they did not have gunshot wounds.

Relatives believe Bogan-Jones was not the intended target.

"She didn't deserve this... a mother of two young children," said sister Tabitha Henderson, who says Bogan-Jones leaves behind two children, ages three and seven.

Atlanta Police have not released the names of any suspects. Anyone with information is asked to call Crime Stoppers; tips can remain anonymous and individuals can receive an award if it leads to an arrest.
