A 32-year-old woman is in jail under bonds totaling $1 million after she was arrested over the weekend by Corpus Christi police.

While authorities say there was a disturbance that led up to the shooting, the incident is still being investigated.

When officers arrived, they found a 21-year-old woman with a gunshot wound. The victim, who was identified by family members, was 21-year-old Alexandra Winfree. She later died at a hospital.

Officers were able to track down a suspect in that shooting, a 32-year-old female, to a home in the 7200 block of Sebastian Court.

SWAT teams were called due to the scene being considered active an dangerous.

Police have not given a motive for the shooting.
