MESA, AZ (CBS5) -
Mesa police are investigating the killing of a woman found shot to death early Tuesday morning.
Witnesses reported gunshots near North Spencer and East 2nd streets around 3 a.m.
Sgt. Tony Landato said the woman's body was found in the street a few doors down from a house where she had attended some sort of gathering.
He said it appeared she suffered at least one gunshot wound.
The victim's mother identified her as 32-year-old Isha Baczynski and said she leaves behind two daughters aged 10 and 3.
"Now she's got two girls that won't have a mom, and I'm burying my daughter," sobbed Sandra Baczynski.
Landato said police don't have a lot of information to go on.
But they believe the shooting followed a dispute between two groups of people - one from the house gathering and at least two individuals in a vehicle.
Isha Baczynski's mother is hoping someone will come forward with information that leads to her daughter's killer or killers.
"It's just not fair that this person took her life, just over some little dispute," said Sandra Baczynski through her tears. "That they had to pull a gun and shoot her and kill her. If this person could shoot my daughter, they're out there and they could yours or shoot you."
