The 24-year-old was apparently flagged down by two black females as she drove to work last week. The two asked to borrow her cell phone. Moments later shots were fired from a passing vehicle killing Cassidy.
Police say they don't believe Cassidy was the target. That discounts the possibility that the murder was a random shoot-a-white-person set up in spite of the unlikelihood that neither of two black females would possess cell phones.
The crime occurred April 17, 2015 in Las Vegas, Nevada.

A video released Tuesday shows a person who police are seeking in the killing of a Las Vegas woman from last Friday.
According to Las Vegas Metro police, the person of interest is tied to an April 17 death investigation of Cassandra Cassidy, 24. Cassidy was found with a gunshot wound in the 1300 block of Westwind Road about 10 p.m.
Cassidy was rushed to University Medical Center for treatment but later died.
Police said Cassidy was shot as she arrived for her shift at Solutions Recovery. Cassidy was approached by two women for her to call of help.
According to Metro Lt. Jeff Goodwin, the women were scared of two men who were in a car down the street. The car with the two men pulled up and opened fire on the three women before speeding away. Cassidy was wounded as a result.
Police believe Cassidy was an innocent bystander in the shooting. Cassidy's killing marked the 28th homicide in Metro's jurisdiction this year.
Police described the person of interest as a young black male with short, curly dark hair.
