Police in Iowa are searching for the source of a bullet that killed a 25-year-old woman on her drive home from work early Sunday morning.

Micalla Rettinger was behind the wheel around 2:30 a.m. on Waterloo’s Highway 218 when, according to police, a bullet penetrated the driver’s side window and struck the 25-year-old Rettinger in the neck.

She later died from her injuries. She had two others in the car with her. One passenger, 23-year-old Adam Kimball, was injured and admitted to the University of Iowa Hospitals, from which he was released Monday, a hospital spokesman tells PEOPLE. A third person in the vehicle was uninjured.

“There is nothing to indicate the victims in this case were in any way involved in any activity that would have caused them to be targeted in this manner,” police said in a news release.

Rettinger, originally from Lenexa, Kansas, was a former high school prep softball star who played for Park Hill High School in suburban Kansas City, Missouri, reports KMBC.
