American woman arrested for deadly shooting Chinese student

An American woman has been arrested for deadly shooting a Chinese student after a traffic accident in Arizona on Saturday.

Holly Davis, 32, was charged with premeditated first-degree murder, aggravated assault with a deadly weapon and disorderly conduct with a deadly weapon, according to Tempe Police.

Jiang Yue, student of Arizona State University was waiting at a red light near the intersection of Broadway Road and McClintock Drive Saturday afternoon when she was hit by Davis, ABC15 reported.

While Jiang's male passenger walked out of the car to check the damage, Davis allegedly shot Jiang multiple times through the window.

Jiang lost control of her car and collided with a third car whose five passengers were slightly injured.

The 19-year-old student from Chongqing died from her injuries at the hospital.

Police tracked down Davis after she fled from the scene. She was located in a Mesa home where police said the woman was not remorseful, not cooperating with police and would not admit to the shooting, according to ABC15.

The suspect had taken in Oxycodone earlier that day, an alternative drug for heroin, the China Press reported.

Arizona State University Media Relations released a statement which read in part:

"Regarding yesterday's incident where ASU student Jiang Yue was killed, we just want to say that fellow students are being encouraged to talk with counselors, and that our thoughts and prayers are with the student's family."
