BAY POINT -- The Contra Costa Sheriff's Office is investigating the death of a woman who was found fatally wounded in the driveway of a home Tuesday night.

Detectives are attempting to determine how she was shot, Lee said.

"It's still early in the investigation and we still have a lot of questions," he said.

Lee declined to comment on possible suspect information in connection with the shooting.

An autopsy on the victim's body will be performed on Thursday.
