Todd sustained a single gunshot wound to the back of the head/neck area and died on the scene, he said.

Detectives believe that Todd was in the company of a male whom she recently met. 

"We are pursuing substantial leads in the case and continue to examine evidence collected through the day yesterday and today," he said.

Investigators say they are not releasing the name of the person of interest at this time.

Police say they hope to make an arrest later this week.
