Jessica Doty Whitaker, 24-year-old young woman has been shot dead by Black Lives Matter supporters after she said ‘all lives matter’ during the fourth of July weekend. The incident happened when Jessica along with her fiancé and two more people walking around the Indianapolis Canal walk reportedly at 3 am on July 5.
According to Ramirez, Jessica Doty Whitekar’s fiancé, he and the others were peacefully strolling near the Canal but as soon as someone among them used a slang version of the N-word as stated in the report by Fox 59. That phrase confronted a group of people consist of four men and a woman and argument started between these two stranger groups.
During the argument, one individual from the offended group shouted ‘Black Lives Matter’. Hearing someone from the group of Whitaker replied with ‘All Lives Matter’.
Jessica Doty Whitaker’s father, Robert Doty told Daily Wire that his daughter, Jessica Doty was the one who responded with ‘all lives matter’.
Ramirez confirmed that after this, both of the groups put the guns on each other but later after talking a bit about the issue, things cooled down and they walked away from each other.
He also revealed that “It was squashed and they went up the hill and left we thought, but they were sitting on St. Clair waiting for us to come under the bridge and that’s when she got shot.”
After that, the reports also unveiled that a suspect has been seen shouting at them from a bridge and later fled away.
Ramirez also told WTHR that he was holding Jessica Doty Whitaker and when it happened she just fell down. He admitted that as a reaction to all this, he also opened backfire.
“I didn’t see nobody. I didn’t hopefully I didn’t hit nobody.”
He acted immediately and took Whitaker to a nearby hospital but she failed to resist the pain of the injuries and doctors said she is no more.
