Arizona Police has arrested a woman in connection with a fatal road rage shooting of a university exchange student in Tempe.

Lt. Michael Pooley of the Tempe Police Dept. announced charges for  32-year-old Holly Davis,  in the first-degree murder of Yue Jiang, a Chinese exchange student attending Arizona State University.

According to police spokeswoman Officer Naomi Galbraith, The incident occurred after two vehicles driven by Davis and Jiang collided near an intersection near Broadway Road and McClintock Drive at about 3:40 p.m. on Saturday.

Davis then exited the vehicle and fired several shots hitting Jiang, who lost control of her car and crashed into another vehicle driven by a family of five, which included a pregnant woman and three children, Galbraith said.

The arrest report states Davis also pointed her gun at a passenger in Jiang’s car, who had minor injuries stemming from the crash.

Paramedics rushed Jiang,  the injured passenger and the family, to a nearby local hospital.  Doctors pronounced Jiang dead a short time after arriving at the hospital. The doctors kept the family in the hospital for precautionary measures.

Davis reportedly fled the scene in a silver Volkswagen Passat; police investigators said she hid her vehicle with the murder weapon before returning to her Mesa apartment, where she showered and washed her clothes.

Galbraith said officers later located Davis and questioned her, which she denied involvement and admitted to using Oxycodone prescription painkillers.

Officers arrested Davis on suspicion of first-degree premeditated murder, aggravated assault with a deadly weapon, disorderly contact with a deadly weapon and prohibited possession.

Records show she has a previous conviction for resisting a lawful stop and fleeing in Missouri, and served three years in prison.
