Police are on the hunt for the gunman who shot and killed a Yonkers woman in Massachusetts.

Authorities say 32-year-old Stephanie Olivieri was shot and killed early Sunday morning in the Western Massachusetts city of Pittsfield.

According to police, Olivieri was sitting in a silver sedan near a downtown Pittsfield intersection when she was hit by a bullet.

Investigators believe Olivieri was not the intended target. She was treated at the scene and later died at the hospital.

The suspect is still on the run, and authorities are investigating the case as a homicide.

Family members declined to comment.           

An autopsy will be performed to determine Olivieri's exact cause of death.
