KANSAS CITY, Kansas (AP) – A girl who was reported missing from the Kansas foster care system in 2012 has died after a shooting.

Kansas media outlets report 16-year-old Jamie J. Hernandez-Zubia was shot early Saturday morning in Kansas City, Kansas. Police say they responded to calls about shots being fired and found the victim dead in the street.

According to police, the occupants of two vehicles fired shots at each other and Hernandez-Zubia had been a passenger in one of those vehicles.

She had been listed as missing since running away on June 9, 2012, from a foster care placement in Wathena in northeastern Kansas.

Police said they are searching for a late-1990s or early-2000s white Ford F-150 pickup in relation to shooting. It may have a bullet hole in its tailgate and tinted windows.
