A witness named Jacqueline Bailey told Depeche Mode that Saturday’s shots came from a jeep traveling past the shopping mall.
The carpenter had gone to the square with the intention of buying snacks, her fiancé told the newspaper and planned to take his 11-year-old daughter to his sister’s house afterwards. After she was hit by gunfire, her vehicle collided with another vehicle on the plot, witnesses told the newspaper.
