A West Virginia woman was shot and killed Thursday night in the parking lot of a bar in Beaver County.

The shooting occurred shortly before 10 p.m. in the parking lot at Jimmy K's Bar along 11th Avenue in New Brighton, county emergency dispatchers said.

Witnesses told WPXI that an argument about who was driving may have sparked the violence.
