    A woman is dead after she was attacked on Maple Avenue in Dallas, police say.

    According to Dallas police, officers were investigating an unrelated call on Nov. 1 when they found Charity Crim, 39, near the 5500 block of Maple Avenue.

    Crim had injuries consistent with a violent attack. She was transported to an area hospital. She succumbed to her injuries and died on Saturday.

    Chris Jones said he and Crim were friends and that she had a vibrant, fun and infectious personality.

    A school officer and a student were injured at Wisoonsin's Oshkosh West High School Tuesday morning, when the student was shot after attempting to stab the office with a sharp object. The shooting comes just one day after a school resource officer at Waukesha South High School shot a 17-year-old armed student who refused to drop his weapon.

    He also said she was a talented artist.

    "She really had a good eye for art," he said. "She inspired a lot of people to paint too. Myself and a lot of my friends, we started painting."

    He last saw Crim more than a month ago. He said she'd struggled to maintain a catering business he helped her start, and she was working to stay on her feet. But he said he never guessed he'd get a call that she was the victim of an attack.

    "What kind of person could hurt another person like that? I can't fathom it," Jones said.

    Police did not answer NBC 5's questions concerning potential leads on the case, or whether they believed Crim knew her attacker.

    Dallas police asked anyone with information regarding this incident to contact Det. Gilmore with the Dallas Police Department Homicide Unit at (214) 671-3608, or at david.gilmore@dallascityhall.com.
