Surveillance video could be the most crucial evidence in the cold-blooded killing of an Edinburg woman.
Police found 20-year-old Jolissa Rangel dead inside her apartment late Friday night.
But investigators hope new evidence released today could lead to her killers.
Surveillance video shot near the scene show the moments just before her death.
The deadly shooting happened at Rangel's apartment complex off Kimberly Lane near the UTPA campus.
The search is now on for the suspects who sped away from the scene.
Investigators believe three men kicked down Rangel's apartment door and less than two minutes later she was dead.
Edinburg Police Lt. Oscar Trevio said authorities are looking into whether or not the murder is gang-related.
"The victim had ties to street gangs, we are not saying she was a member of street gangs but she did have friends or associates in street gangs, Trevio said.
Police are looking for three suspect vehicles:
A dark Ford F-150 A light colored, possibly silver, Ford F-150 with a chrome/silver toolbox Another truck, make and model unknown at this time
Autopsy results have not been released to tell how many times Rangel was shot.
Police need your help to catch the people responsible for Rangel's death.
