Friends of 23 year old Kallen Carothers want her killer to do the right thing and surrender.
Carothers was fatally shot around 11:15 Wednesday night at the intersection of 16 Avenue and 19 Street Northwest.
Calgary police describe it as a drive by shooting.
Carothers was driving but police believe there was a passenger in the car and that individual was also injured.
He’s still described as a witness by police and has not come forward.
Carothers’ parents released a public statement which says, “Our daughter was not a gang member, although she may have made a bad choice in friend relationships.”
She was studying to become a medical office assistant.
Her friends tell CTV News she was a loving person who would give you the shirt off her back if you needed it.
They say her family deserves justice and has started a GoFundMe page to help the family with funeral expenses.
Anyone with any information is asked to call Calgary police.
Interim Chief of Police Paul Cook is expected to outline a plan against Calgary’s escalating gun violence later this week.
