According to a criminal complaint, 21-year-old Deanthony Bradley and three others wanted to rob her. A witness told investigators he saw Bradley with a weapon, and thought this was a drug deal.
Authorities say Bradley pointed a gun at Wood's head with his finger on the trigger.
He told police when Wood tried to drive away, the gun went off -- and Wood was killed. An autopsy revealed she suffered two gunshot wounds -- one to the back and one to the chest -- wounds caused by one bullet, according to police.
After the shooting, Wood's vehicle crashed into a tree in the area.
"I had a meltdown. I just started balling," Greg Wood said.
According to the complaint, after the shooting, a witness indicated one of the suspects went to Rebecca Wood's vehicle and took a purse -- apparently dropping it when a witness yelled at them.
The complaint says police found Rebecca Wood's purse and a $20 bill near her body at the scene. A $10 bill was later found at the scene, with blood on it.
According to the complaint, one of the suspects stated that they got away with $20 after the robbery and fatal shooting. The complaint states that a suspect told investigators he used the money to buy cigarettes and "two bags of weed."
