South Carolina authorities are investigating a Valentine’s Day shooting that left a woman dead in the parking lot of a grocery store. According to Irmo Police Chief Bobby Dale, 23-year-old Christina Harrison has turned herself in to face her criminal charges.
These charges include murder, the unlawful carrying of a pistol, as well as possession of a weapon during a violent crime. Jail records do not indicate if Harrison has entered a plea or retained a lawyer.
It is unclear what sparked the altercation that led to the shooting, as the women did not know each other prior to the incident. Alexandria Cress Borys, the victim, was shot to death in front of her two-year-old child and another infant who were both in the car at the time.
The tragic events of Valentine’s Day have left many in South Carolina shocked and heartbroken. Alexandria Cress Borys was a nursing student and mother who was taken from her family and loved ones in a senseless act of violence.
Christina Harrison has turned herself in and will face charges in connection with the incident, but the motive for the shooting remains unclear. Borys’ husband, Tyler, has expressed his deep grief and loss at the death of his wife, who he described as an amazing partner and mother.
As the investigation into this tragedy continues, authorities are urging anyone with information about the incident to come forward. The shooting has left a community reeling, as loved ones and friends of Alexandria Cress Borys come to terms with their loss.
A GoFundMe campaign was made to raise funds for a memorial for Borys, and many have expressed their condolences and support for the family.
