It was Mother’s Day weekend this year when Selena Dukes visited an apartment complex in South Fulton, Georgia. Her friend was having a domestic argument with a boyfriend, and although it’s unclear if Selena decided to go on her own or if her friend called for help, Selena made her way over. It’s reported that when the 23-year-old arrived at the scene, the couple was in the thick of an intense argument. The friend was there to pick up her infant at her ex’s home, but there seemed to be a disagreement over the transfer of the child from its father, 33-year-old Diante Gore.

Then, in the parking lot, things turned tragic after Gore allegedly retrieved his weapon and opened fire. Selena, the mother of a daughter who is pre-school age, was shot in the back and died at the scene.

As witnesses were said to have stood in disbelief, it’s reported that Gore took off on foot to avoid authorities. At the time of this publication, Gore has not yet been located. Fox 5 News reports that authorities have confirmed with them that once detained, Gore faces charges of murder, aggravated assault, possession of a firearm by a convicted felon, and possession of a firearm during the commission of a crime.

“She was loved, loved by a lot of people. A sweet, nice, very bubbly person,” said her cousin, Shaneka Newton. “We know who you are, police know who you are, please come forward and turn yourself in, it was a senseless killing.” Several people gathered in Selena’s hometown of Smyrna, Georgia, and held a candlelight vigil in her honor.
