Family members tell 23ABC that the victim who was shot and killed Tuesday night is Alyson Muniz. They say the suspect was her boyfriend. The Kern County Coroner's Office has not officially identified the victim in the shooting.

Police have identified the suspect as 24-year-old Carlos Garcia Jr. Police say he's 5-foot-7, 150 pounds with brown short hair and brown eyes. He's considered armed and a threat to the community. 

Bakersfield Police responded to the area of Abbott Drive near Hageman Road and Calloway Drive just before 8:30 Tuesday night after reports of a shooting. 

The woman, who police say was in her 20s, was found suffering from a gunshot wound. She was taken to an area hospital where she later died.
