Fresno Woman Found Shot and Left to Die Indentified

FRESNO, Calif. Barbery Dugan was a mother of five ... candles and flowers mark the spot where the 42-year-old was shot and left to die Friday night. Her oldest daughter Heather is having a hard time coping with her mother's sudden death.

The vice principal at Wilson Elementary School knew Dugan well. Over the years, she had volunteered in her children's classes and helped out in any way she could.

Kelley Forse said, "Barbery was a wonderful mother. She's been very involved in our school. She was instrumental in getting our parent faculty club off the ground. She was very passionate in making sure our parent volunteers were fingerprinted, she kind of got that going at our school. Very involved."

Loved ones say Dugan did not deserve to die in the street. Her children say they have many great memories of good times they shared with her.

Dugan's daughter Heather said, "I mean she would throw a big dinner for nothing special ... or we would BBQ tons of food and there would be no reason. But she would loved to cook she didn't like the clean up but she loved to cook ... so and it was god food."

Fresno Police are not releasing a motive for Dugan's death. Witnesses say a suspect jumped this fence and got away moments after neighbors heard a commotion then a loud bang, which was probably the gun shot that killed her.

So far, no arrests have been made. Family members desperate for answers are pleading with anyone who knows what happened to do the right thing.

"If anyone has any information, please call she was a mom and a daughter and a grandma and now we're all missing her a lot."

Investigators have spent the past few days interviewing several people. They are not naming any suspects at this time. Officers are also trying to find a vehicle that was involved but left the area before officers arrived.
