KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (WATE) — Knoxville Police released what caused the death of a woman death investigators believe is connected with a West Knoxville shooting.

The death of Destiny Jones, 24, is under investigation by Knoxville Police after she was found at a crash scene on Kingston Pike leading onto Alcoa Highway. Knoxville Police said on Thursday that Medical Examiner’s Office personnel found that Jones was shot one time in the lower body, but it was a non-fatal wound. According to police, the medical examiner determined that Jones died as a result of blunt force trauma sustained in the crash.

Knoxville Police Department’s Homicide Unit is continuing the investigation into the shooting at Bebo’s Cafe as well as to identify the individuals involved in the shooting, the release says. The investigation is ongoing.

“It’s undetermined at this point if she died as a result of the crash or the gunshot. It hasn’t been independently verified by the (medical examiner) that she was shot, but there is reason to believe that was the case,” Knoxville Police Department spokesperson Scott Erland said previously.

KPD said in a news release Monday that officers responded to a reported shooting that occurred in the parking lot of Bebo’s Café on Gleason Drive.

“Numerous shell casings were located in the parking lot, but no gunshot victims were found on scene,” KPD stated.

Soon after responding to the shooting scene, officers found a car that was believed to have fled the shooting scene crashed on the Kingston Pike ramp toward southbound Alcoa Highway.

Jones, whom police say was a passenger in the vehicle, was ejected from the car and pronounced dead at a local hospital. KPD stated that based on the preliminary investigation, it is believed that Jones was suffering from a gunshot wound.

Jones’s body was taken to the Knox County Regional Forensic Center for an autopsy to determine her cause of death. KPD’s Homicide Unit is leading the investigation.
