Authorities say a woman was fatally shot while cooking Thanksgiving dinner after someone fired shots into a northeast Columbus home.

 
Police have identified the woman as 34-year-old Adrian Scott. She was pronounced dead at a hospital shortly before 1:30 p.m. Thursday.
 
The Columbus Dispatch reports that a man who identified himself as Scott's boyfriend says Scott was standing at a kitchen table preparing macaroni and cheese when shots rang out. Five people were inside the house at the time. No one else was injured.
 
Scott didn't live in the home.
 
A Columbus police spokesman says multiple shots were fired at the home on the city's northeast side. No suspects or motive for the shooting has been released.
