MISHAWAKA, Ind. (WNDU) - The Mishawaka Police Department has released a statement after a St. Joseph County corrections officer was killed in a drive-by shooting in the 1900 block of Milburn Boulevard over the weekend.

Police say they’ve determined that this is an isolated incident and not a random act of violence. They add that there’s no reason for the public to be concerned for their safety regarding the incident.

Rhema Harris, 28, was a U.S. Army veteran and was hired as a correctional officer last July. On Sunday, she was shot in the chest and taken to the hospital, where she later died. Officials say it started as a drive-by shooting with shots fired at the back of the house from an alley.
