A 24-year-old mother was shot dead in Indianapolis, Indiana after she shouted “All Live Matter” to a group of “Black Lives Matter” supporters.
The young woman, Jessica Doty Whitaker was taking a stroll on July 5 with her fiance, Jose Ramirez and two other people near the Indianapolis Canal Walk at 3 am.
Ramirez narrated that the four of them were taking a walk when one of them used the n-word. A group of five people consisting of four men and one woman heard the slang and confronted them.
While they were arguing, the group which confronted Ramirez and his fiancee shouted “Black Lives Matter” to which Jessica responded “All Lives Matter”.
Ramirez said they both pulled guns on each other but they talked their differences through after a while.
‘It was squashed and they went up the hill and left we thought, but they were sitting on St. Clair waiting for us to come under the bridge and that’s when she got shot,’ Ramirez said.
Ramirez said a suspect nearby started shooting from a nearby bridge to which he responded with fire but didn’t hit nor see anybody.
‘I was actually holding her when it happened. She just fell,’ he said.
‘I didn’t see nobody. I didn’t hopefully I didn’t hit nobody.’
Jessica was a home health nurse who wanted to go to school in August and marry next year. She had a 3-year-old son named Greyson which she left behind after she was pronounced dead at the hospital.
‘Just justice. For us, mostly for him. He’s got a mom he probably won’t even remember when he gets older,’ Ramirez said tearfully referring to his son.
