A mother and daughter were getting ready for bed last night just after eight o’clock when they were shot at the entrance of their home by two gunmen.  42-year-old, Stephanie Smith remains in the hospital after she received a gunshot wound to her stomach; while her pregnant 18-year-old daughter, Shennelle Rowland was released from the Karl Heusner Memorial Hospital at around seven thirty this morning.  Rowland, who got grazed on her stomach and right leg, spoke to Love News on what she remembers from last night.

As Rowland mentioned, the gunmen were targeting her brother and she would like to ask them why they did what they did.

Ordinarily, we would have family members of victims of gun violence praying and hoping for justice …. But in this case, Nunez says he just wants it all to stop.
