OCALA, Fla. (AP) - Marion County authorities say the woman who fatally shot her ex-boyfriend seen riding on the hood of her car has not been charged.

A sheriff's office statement says 36-year-old Lamark Tucker Sr. jumped on the car as his ex-girlfriend tried to leave her home Saturday night. Tucker held on for nearly ten miles and threatened to harm her. Authorities say the woman tried to stop for help and at one point fired once through the windshield, striking Tucker.

He was taken to the hospital where he was pronounced dead. No arrests have been made, but authorities are asking witnesses to call detectives. The woman told officials that Tucker was her ex-boyfriend and their three children were not in the car at the time.
