(Felton) -- State police have opened an involuntary manslaughter investigation after a woman riding in a car on a rural York County road was killed by a stray bullet.

Troopers say 55-year-old Nancy Folcomer of Red Lion was in a car in North Hopewell Township when she was hit by the nine milimeter round shortly after 3:30 p.m. Saturday. She was pronounced dead less than an hour later.

Authorities said responding police found a 42-year-old man and a 21-year-old man had been shooting a pistol on private property nearby. Their names weren't released.

An autopsy is scheduled for tomorrow to determine the cause and manner of death.
