The Fulton County Medical Examiner's Office has identified the woman who was shot and killed early Monday morning in Atlanta.

Trinh Huynh, 40, was shot at close range in the 900 block of Peachtree Street NE around 7:40 a.m. while walking to work, said Lt. Ricardo Vazquez with the Atlanta Police Department.

"We're interviewing several witnesses. Still in process of that to try to put it all together," said Lt. Vazquez.

Huynh was transported to Grady Memorial Hospital where she died from her injuries.

Investigators believe Huynh was specifically targeted by the gunman. He is being described as either a white or Hispanic male, about 6-feet tall, wearing a black top and dark blue shorts.

"Trinh Huynh passionately lived her life, whether as a daughter, sister, friend, or lawyer. She served the Asian American legal community for many years through GAPABA and other bar associations," posted a member of the Georgia Asian Pacific Bar Association on the organization's Facebook page.
