BPD releases name of woman shot and killed following traffic accident
BEAUMONT - from Beaumont Police Department
Detectives have formally identified the young woman killed this morning in the shooting at 11th Street and Laurel. She was Dominique R. Reed. Dominique was a 22-year-old Beaumont resident.
Out of respect for Dominique's family, Detectives made sure that they were all formally notified prior to releasing her name.
Judge Nancy Beaulieu ordered an autopsy, which is to be performed tomorrow morning.
Detectives continue to work to determine all the true circumstances surrounding Dominique's death. It is still very early in this investigation and speculation is not only potentially damaging to the integrity of the case, but also very hurtful for family members who are left to deal with Dominique's death.
We remind everyone that it would be most helpful to keep prayers plentiful while keeping rumors and speculation to a minimum.
