A young mother was killed in front of her children after an argument in a parking lot on Valentine’s Day
A 26-year-old mother was gunned down in front of her young children outside a grocery store in South Carolina on Valentine’s Day.
Alexandria Kress Boris was shopping at a Kroger store in Irmo, South Carolina on Tuesday when she got into a verbal altercation with a complete stranger while packing groceries in her car in the parking lot, Boris’ husband, Tyler, told WIS-TV.
After the dispute appeared to have ended, he said, the stranger, whom police identified as 23-year-old Christina Harrison, pulled out a gun and shot Boris in the back around 4 p.m.
Tyler Boris told WACH that she was shot while their 2-year-old and infant were in the car.
According to the Irmo Police Department, the police arrived at the scene and shortly thereafter pronounced Alexandria Kress Boris dead.
After talking to witnesses, investigators determined that Harrison and Boris had an argument, though it’s not clear what the argument is about.
Harrison fled the scene in a white Ford, police said, but later turned himself in around 5:30 p.m.
She was charged with murder and other weapons offenses and was placed in the Lexington County Detention Center.
Harrison was due to appear in court on Wednesday, but her private attorney declined a hearing, according to the Lexington County Bond Court.
“Unfortunately, this is a situation where passions flared up and someone let anger get the better of them. One rash decision impacted the lives of two families and countless others who witnessed this tragic event.” This is stated in a statement by Chief Bobby Dale. “Nonsense is the only word I can think of to describe what happened today.”
According to her husband, Bori’s death came just six days after her brother died from a gunshot wound.
Tyler Boris recalled his wife, a beautician and nursing student, as “the best wife you could ask for.”
“Besides, she was a great mother,” he told WACH.
Tyler Boris launched a GoFundMe campaign to raise money for a memorial to Alexandria.
“Beautiful woman, wonderful mother, compassionate wife, trusting friend and more,” he wrote on the web page. “Alexandria was indeed taken too early.”
