A woman shot in September in north Omaha has died, and authorities are awaiting autopsy results to determine whether her death was related to her gunshot wound.

Tanya Leffler, 37, died June 21 in Sioux City, Iowa, according to her obituary notice. Douglas County Attorney Don Kleine said Wednesday that an autopsy was performed Tuesday.

“We’re awaiting the results of that autopsy,” Kleine said. “We want to determine if that was the cause of her death, and we hope to have results in the near future.”

Leffler was wounded about 9 p.m. Sept. 2 as she sat in a vehicle outside a store near Florence Boulevard and Miami Street. Leffler was in the driver’s seat of a minivan at B&T Convenience and Liquor Store.

Police said at the time that they didn’t think Leffler was the intended target. Store surveillance video showed a man standing in front of the liquor store who police think was the target. The man ran off, a police spokesman said.

Leffler was taken by ambulance to the Nebraska Medical Center with injuries that police said were not life-threatening.

Officials have not announced any arrests in connection with the shooting.
