Southwest Florida Crime Stoppers is asking for information in the 2006 shooting death of a 49-year-old woman.

Glinda Thomas Allen was shot to death while sitting in a parked vehicle in the area of Lincoln Boulevard and Ford Street in the early morning hours of Oct. 18, 2006.

Allen was the passenger in a red 2005 BMW 330i when an unknown black male shot at the vehicle. Allen was struck by the gunfire and the driver of the vehicle she was in took her to Lee Memorial Hospital where she was pronounced deceased.

Police said the exact location of the shooting is unknown because the driver of the BMW was unfamiliar with the area. It is believed that the incident occurred in the Dunbar community.

If you have any information about this investigation, call SWFL Crime Stoppers at 1-800-780-TIPS (8477). All callers will remain anonymous and will be eligible for a cash reward of up to $3,000. Tips may also be made online at or by submitting a tip on the P3 Tips mobile app.
