Yue Jiang, 19, was shot and killed in a road-rage shooting by an Arizona woman.
According to Tempe Police, Jiang Yue and her boyfriend were driving home from a shopping trip on Saturday, January 16 when her car was rear-ended.
Allegedly, Holly Davis, 32, got out of her car and started firing multiple shots into Jiang’s vehicle, which then hit another car with five passengers.
Jiang was pronounced dead at the scene and her boyfriend, a pregnant woman, and three children were injured. Davis now faces charges, including first-degree murder.
According to police, Davis was uncooperative and didn’t show any signs of remorse.
Jiang was a finance major studying at Arizona State University. Her recent death is a hot topic in China, many sharing fears of studying in the United States. This incident is also the latest tragedy to fan the flames of the debate on how to reduce gun violence in the country.
Mark Searle, the Provost of Arizona State said in a statement, “Jiang’s life was lost in a senseless act of violence.”
On Monday, January 18 about 300 students gathered for a memorial.
