A woman in a wheelchair was shot and killed Monday morning when D.C. police say she was caught in the crossfire of a gun battle.
Family say Vivian Marrow, 68, of Southeast, D.C. was on the way to the corner store when she was shot, caught in a gun battle. D.C.’s Mayor Murial Bowser released a statement on Marrow’s death:
“Today, because of senseless gun violence, Washington, DC lost another resident, three children lost their mother, and eleven grandchildren lost their grandmother. There is no excuse for this type of violence. Because someone engaged in reckless gunfire in broad daylight while others were outside trying to live their lives, we now have another family dealing with tragedy and another community rattled by the loss of a beloved neighbor. This violence must stop, and the person or people responsible for killing Vivian Marrow must be brought to justice. We are asking anyone with information to call the police at 202-727-9099 or send an anonymous tip to the Text Tip Line by text messaging 50411.”
A GoFundMe account has been created for Vivian to help funeral arrangements. Please stop the violence.
