County authorities today identified a woman who was killed Sunday afternoon after police said she was targeted in a North Long Beach commercial area.

Tearra Stocker, 35, was identified by the Los Angeles County Coroner’s Office as the victim of the slaying that occurred in a strip mall in the 6600 block of Cherry Avenue around 3:30 p.m.

Police say Stocker was sitting in her car with another person when the gunman, who police have since identified as Wilmington resident Corderell McKnight, began to fire several rounds toward the victim. The other person in the car was not injured, police said.

Officers who responded to the shooting rendered aid to Stocker, who had gunshot wounds to her upper and lower body, according to the LBPD. The Long Beach Fire Department transported the victim to a local hospital where she later died from her injuries.

Shortly after, police identified McKnight, a long-time acquaintance of Stocker’s, as the suspected gunman in the shooting. At around 7:12 p.m., police said they located McKnight driving near Long Beach Memorial Medical Center.

McKnight refused to pull over and instead lead officers on a 20-minute pursuit that was eventually handed off to the California Highway Patrol after McKnight entered the 405 Freeway, police said.

McKnight was arrested later that night by Los Angeles police, according to the LBPD. He was transferred back to Long Beach where he was booked for one count of murder. On Tuesday, he was charged with one count each: murder, reckless evading of police, being a felon in possession of a firearm and illegally owning ammunition, records show. He has not entered a plea.

Records show he is due back in court on April 13 for arraignment and his bail has been increased to $4 million.
