A young mother was shot from behind after saying “all lives matter,” according to her family and fiancé.
Jessica Doty-Whitaker, 24, died in an Indiana hospital earlier this month after being shot by an unseen assailant.
Doty-Whitaker, the mother of a three-year-old boy, was walking along the Indianapolis Canal Walk with her fiancé José Ramirez and another couple around 3:00 a.m. on July 5 after celebrating the Fourth of July.
According to Ramirez, they encountered a group of four men and one woman and got into a heated argument about language and the Black Lives Matter movement. It apparently began when a member of Ramirez’s group allegedly used the slang word “n***” in a non-disparaging way in conversation and the strangers, overhearing, took offense.
One of the strangers said “black lives matter,” and Doty-Whitaker, who was the only white member of her party, replied, “All lives matter.”
