Tracey Donahue was puffing a cigarette out her passenger-side window early Saturday, her husband Tom Donahue at the wheel, when their trip to grab a meal together was interrupted by gunfire while on southbound Interstate 15.

At least six bullets ripped through the couple’s car about 9:25 a.m. in a “totally random” shooting, Las Vegas police said.

Tom, 55, was rushed to University Medical Center with injuries that were not life-threatening. Tracey, 48, was pronounced dead at the hospital about an hour later.

The woman shoved him, said police were on the way and escaped. Security footage confirms the account.

One man, whose semitrailer had been shot near the southbound Tropicana Avenue exit, pulled over, called police and told them everything he saw:
