Sadly, a South Carolina mother of two was shot and killed on Valentine’s Day in front of her children in what authorities say was a parking lot dispute, NY Post reported. 

Alexandria Cress Borys, 26, was out shopping with her two children at Kroger in Irmo, South Carolina on Tuesday when she got into a verbal spat with 23-year-old Christina Harrison in the parking lot. 

Borys’ husband, Tyler, told WIS-TV that his wife was packing the groceries in the car with their 2-year-old child and infant in the car when she was gunned down by

“a complete stranger.”

After the heated exchange Christina Harrison pulled out her handgun, shooting Borys in the back around 4 p.m., he said. Irmo Police Department police arrived on the scene and pronounced Alexandria Cress Borys dead shortly after.

Harrison left the scene in a white Ford, but later turned herself in around 5:30 p.m., police said. She was taken to the Lexington County Detention Center where she faces charges of murder and other weapons-related offenses, reports note. 

Tyler Borys started a GoFundMe campaign to raise money for a memorial in Alexandria’s memory where he remembers her as

“a beautiful woman, wonderful mother, compassionate wife, trusting friend, and so so much more,”

he wrote on the webpage.

“Alexandria was truly taken too soon.”
