Mary Marshall Bio – Mary Marshall Wiki
Mary Marshall was killed in a shooting spree in Raleigh, North Carolina, including a young bride-to-be walking her dog — along with a mom of three whose husband shared a heartbreaking tribute mourning all of their plans for the future together that have been “laid to waste.”
Mary Marshall was 34 years old.
DETAIL OF INCIDENCE:
While Marshall was running after her dog, she was shot and killed.
When Steele got there, he couldn’t find Mary. Instead, he saw flashing red lights, police officers and detectives swarming the area.
“They started asking about tattoos that Mary has,” he said, breaking down in tears. “We knew. We knew she was gone.”
Marshall was one of five people killed Thursday night, starting at about 5 p.m., when 15-year-old Austin Thomas allegedly opened fire in the Hedingham neighbourhood near Osprey Cove Drive and Bay Harbor Drive, said police.
He then ran to the nearby trail where he allegedly shot Marshall, say police.
On Friday morning, police identified the victims as Nicole Connors, 52; Susan Karnatz, 49; Marshall; off-duty Raleigh police officer Gabriel Torres, 29; and the suspect’s older brother, James Thompson, 16.
Two others, including another police officer, were wounded, say officials.
The alleged shooter was arrested and taken to a local hospital, where he was listed in critical condition, police said.
It is unclear why he was taken to the hospital.
Prosecutors say he will be tried as an adult.
Marshall’s dog was later found, Marshall’s older sister, Meaghan McCrickard, told NBC News.
She said Marshall’s dog “Scruff sat with her all night and didn’t leave,” NBC News reports.
As police continue to investigate, Marshall’s fiancé and close-knit family have been left “numb” and “crushed” by the loss of the upbeat woman who lit up every room she entered, McCrickard told NBC News.
Marshall was “the most amazing, wonderful person,” McCrickard told NBC News.
Marshall spent four years in the Navy stationed in California and spent time in Japan, McCrickard said.
Her little sister could also be “goofy” at times and was the “heart and soul” of the chiropractic office she ran in Raleigh, and she told NBC News.
Marshall’s father, Thomas Marshall, broke down when he told Sunday Today how excited he was to walk his daughter down the aisle.
“I was really looking forward to it. I couldn’t wait for it,” he told Sunday Today, as his voice cracked with emotion.
NBC News reports that her mother, Ginny Marshall, said she was looking forward to the mother-daughter dance.
“Mary’s birthday is next week and she was going to be married in two weeks,” Ginny Marshall told NBC News as she wept for the loss of her daughter. “We don’t know what to do.”
Steele told Sunday Today he is wearing the wedding ring that Marshall would have given him when they married on October 29.
“The engraving is ‘You’re my favourite place,'” he said.
