  • The news is making this out to be a random incident and people are afraid. Rightfully so, but I looked at the suspects Facebook page and there are comments from the victim on his photo, smiley faces with heart eyes from as far back as January. She knew him and so it is safe to assume she was targeted by him for some reason, not some random thug running around shooting people. I think this is important to inform the public about and for us to be vigilant, but it was obviously planned. God bless her and her family she did not deserve this horrible thing to happen to her at such a young age.
