Police say Campos was in her car playing Pokemon GO at 1:30am at nearby Bianchetti Park in Albuquerque, New Mexico before witnessing an attempted armed robbery. Campos drove away, but the assailants shot at her car, striking her in the neck and causing her to crash in a nearby house. She later died at the hospital. The murder happened right outside of Campos' apartment.

"Her and her boyfriend always make a loop around this park before they go home and play Pokemon Go because their apartment is literally right there," Campos' friend Cody Bell told KRQE.

Police have released a surveillance video but have not identified any suspects. The APD is currently looking for a red car, possibly a Ford Mustang, and a silver four-door sedan.

If you saw either vehicle at 1:30 am outside of Bianchetti Park or near Lomas Blvd NE & Tramway Blvd NE, contact the Albuquerque Police Department at (505) 244-6643.
