A Gospel radio show host Wednesday night was shot and killed in Northeast Baltimore, local law enforcement reported.

Tyra Womack, 57, an announcer on WEAA-FM's weekly "Gospel Grace" program for more than 30 years, was fatally shot following a neighborhood dispute.

Baltimore Police spokeswoman Detective Nicole Monroe said a patrol officer responding to a reported shooting around 10:00 p.m. found Womack shot multiple times.

She was found inside her home in what police are calling a "senseless, tragic murder." Medical personnel pronounced her dead at the scene.

The radio station offered their condolences and prayers to Womack's family.

"We are heartbroken about her passing and remember her beautiful, gentle, sweet spirit today," the radio station tweeted.

According to the Baltimore Sun, approximately 200 people joined a Thursday morning prayer call for Womack and her family.

Monroe said investigators have identified a person of interest but declined to provide any further information.
