Three weeks ago, on Mother’s day, two friends stumbled upon a burglary in progress just outside of the SLU campus. They tried to flee when they realized what they were witnessing, but the criminals opened fire and struck 28 year old Laura. She is now fighting for her life.
KMOV has an article about this shockingly senseless act of violence:
Laura’s friends have created the Victims of Violence Benefit in her honor, and to raise awareness for other victims as well. It will be Saturday 6/2 from 12p-6p at Novak’s in the Grove. Get more details about the event and RSVP at the Facebook event page here:
One of the organizers has lived in our neighborhood and attended Kennard. She appreciates the support of anybody that can make it out Saturday.
