Homicide investigators were called to a Northside strip mall late Tuesday afternoon.

Police responded to the 5900 block of Norwood Avenue at about 4:20 p.m. after a woman called 911 to report she had shot her estranged boyfriend, 22-year-old Xzavien Brown.

According to police, the woman got into some sort of an altercation with Brown, then shot him. Brown then drove his car to a strip mall just down the road, where he was pronounced dead.

The woman, who's name also was not released, was taken to JSO for questioning. It was not clear if she'll be charged.

Police also told Channel 4 that the woman may have had some sort of injunction against Brown.

No other information was immediately available.
