WARREN — At press time, Warren detectives were working to identify five women they’re calling “persons of interest” tied to a continuing investigation into a fatal shooting that left another woman dead in the parking lot of 7-Eleven at 12 Mile and Schoenherr roads.

The women were believed to be in a vehicle from which the shot that killed the victim, 26-year-old Johnice Clark, was fired at about 9:30 p.m. June 5.

A $3,000 reward is being offered for information leading to the arrest of the suspect responsible for the fatal shooting.

According to Warren police, Clark was shot after she left a party in the 14500 block of Colpaert Drive, near Schoenherr and Masonic Boulevard. Warren Police Commissioner Bill Dwyer said a witness told detectives that she picked Clark up at the party and that she observed her arguing with a woman on the front lawn. After they left the house, they realized they were being chased by another vehicle, believed to be a Ford Focus. At least one shot was fired, and Clark was struck in the head in the passenger seat. The driver told police she pulled into the parking lot of 7-Eleven and asked an employee to call 911.

The Focus reportedly fled in another direction. Dwyer said Clark was dead at the scene.

“Detectives on Saturday night and early Sunday morning interviewed a number of people, including the homeowner at the address, and they indicated that they were hosting a pool party and the party was someway advertised on social media. There were a number of people that attended that they didn’t know,” Dwyer said.

It wasn’t clear whether the party crashers were involved in the shooting or whether the women knew each other beforehand. Dwyer said at this time, it appeared the altercation involved some kind of a relationship that tied together the victim, the alleged shooter and another individual.

A cross and a heart made from blue and white flowers were left in the parking lot at 7-Eleven in memory of the victim.
