SYRACUSE, N.Y. (AP) Police say a 24-year-old woman has died after being shot in Syracuse at a makeshift memorial to a victim of a fatal shooting last week.

Officials tell local media outlets that Laquisha Paul was shot in the back at close range Sunday afternoon as she stood in front of the street memorial to 22-year-old Karon Cole, who was fatally shot at the same location early last Tuesday morning.

Police say Paul was taken to Upstate University Hospital, where she died Sunday night.

The investigation into the killing is continuing.
