An Edinburg woman is dead and police are looking for answers.  

Jolissa Rangel was killed in her Edinburg apartment on Friday night.  Investigators say at least three men in three pickup trucks targeted her home.  They shot at the door several times and in the process Rangel was hit with a fatal bullet. 

Authorities are looking for a motive and to find out if she were the intended target.  

"She was affiliated with some local street gangs," said Oscar Trevino of the Edinburg Police Dept. "We're not saying that she's a member at all, whatsoever. But she did have friends that associated there at the apartment who have gang ties."  

Police say the trucks involved are late model Ford F-150s.  One is dark and the other is a light color.
