Rebecca Karns was a doting mother of two children who was out late with her boyfriend on October 12, 2018 in Broward County, Florida. While Karns was behind the wheel with her boyfriend in the passenger seat, a bullet pierced her chest, police said.

Karns, 31, was rushed to a nearby hospital, where she was declared brain dead the next day. Her family is devastated at the loss.



"We all are feeling the pain. We all are crying right now. We all are in tears because no one deserved to end up this way," Jonathan Karns, the victim’s brother, told Local News 10. "She was fun to be around, always laughing, loving, caring. She would go out of her way and do anything for you or for anybody." 

Broward deputies say they don't believe the shooting was random, although they haven't share any information about what they know.

 Rebecca Karns was shot in the chest on October 12, 2018 in in Broward County, Florida. Her boyfriend, who was in the passenger seat, was unharmed.
