BELLEVIEW, Fla. – A woman was found shot to death in Belleview early Monday after witnesses heard screaming, police said.

The fatal shooting was reported at 8:30 a.m. near some duplexes in the 5900 block of SE Front Road.

According to Belleview police, officers found Sariah Dixon's body between two homes after receiving calls about a woman screaming and shots being fired.
