A mother was shot and killed in Brooklyn on her way home. Three other people were also wounded in an incident that has shocked the community. Someone opened fire at 9 pm on Thursday, killing the 28-year old woman and wounding several others. Fatima Gordon was loved by her relatives and her death is part of a seemingly endless wave of senseless violence all across the country.
“My niece is a wonderful girl,” said her aunt. “Please not my niece. God, take me. She was just coming from the store. Her birthday is Saturday. She’s a wonderful mother – why her?”
The scene was described to be chaotic after the shooting, with people getting their loved ones to the hospital amid a frightening set of circumstances.
“There were six or seven shots,” said Kevin Fraser, 25, an office manager. “A woman was lying on the ground. She wasn’t moving. Another woman was tending to her and screaming.”
The mother was rushed to the hospital, and died en route. In addition to Gordon, a 13-year old boy was hit in the back, a man was shot in the stomach and another man was shot in the forearm and buttocks. Police do not yet have a suspect.
