“They were going to take them to Chuck E. Cheese,” Shawn Mallory said. “We’re all pretty upset. This is a tight-knit community here, so the neighbors all know eachother.”

Wash’s landlord described the victim as a polite young woman who had no enemies. She had just started a new job.

Wash’s son was inside the home at the time of the shooting and did not witness his mother’s killing, police said.
