    Terrible to hear. Stay off the streets in the middle of the night.

    Under what circumstances was this woman shot multiple times and killed? I can imagine a situation where a severely addicted person would be driven to secure drugs on the street at that time of night. I can’t imagine how her murder is the outcome.
