Officer found the victim, identified by friends and family as Shawna Greer, suffering from gunshot wounds and rushed her to a local hospital, where she died.

Sayles said Richmond was taken into custody and charged with First Degree Murder, Domestic Battery, and Possession of a Stolen Firearm.

Greer’s friends say Richmond was her boyfriend.

Monica Smith said Greer was like a sister to her. “I’m so hurt. I’m so sad. I’m so mad. I just want you to write me one more time and tell me you love me and that I’m gonna be all right, because who’s gonna tell me that now? Who’s gonna tell me that I’m gonna be all right? Because I’m not going to be okay. I miss you already. I love you.”

Greer was a mother of three. The father of her children, Richard Fisher, described her as someone who would have done anything for her kids.

“Her kids were everything,” Fisher said. “Like, she would go to the top about them three kids.”

Fisher said losing Greer will be hard on everyone in her family, and life won’t ever be the same.

“I don’t know how I’m going to deal with looking at my kids without seeing a part of her,” he said.

“I don’t know what possessed him to do this but I just hope they give him the death penalty and he never sees daylight again,” he added.

Smith said, “Your heart was pure gold. Somebody just took you out of this world. That’s crazy.”

A vigil for Greer is planned for tonight, from 5 p.m. to 6 p.m, outside her Madison Road home.

A GoFundMe has been set up for the family.
