MIAMI GARDENS, Fla. - A mother of three who was struck by a stray bullet while driving home from work in Miami Gardens died of a gunshot wound to her head and neck, an autopsy report shows.

Alicia Roundtree, 43, was fatally wounded Saturday night near the Miami-Dade County Public Library on Northwest 183rd Street.

Roundtree was airlifted to Aventura Hospital and Medical Center, where she was pronounced dead.

A Miami-Dade County Medical Examiner Department's report obtained by Local 10 News lists the cause of death as "gunshot wound of head and neck."

Her oldest son, Johnathan Raphael, had a message for whoever shot her.

"You need to turn yourself in. Don't hurt anyone else," Raphael said. "My family's hurt. I'm hurt. Please don't hurt anyone else."

Police are asking anyone with information about the shooting to call detectives at 305-474-1710 or Miami-Dade Crime Stoppers at 305-471-TIPS. A reward of up to $3,000 is being offered for information that leads to an arrest.
