A mother was allegedly killed by her husband. According to People, after he shot the woman, he went on to shoot her two children. Reports say her children were struck, luckily, they survived. Valerie Junius’ body was discovered in her apartment by officials. Authorities say the murder was motivated by a domestic dispute between Junius and her husband, Lawrence Reed.
A GoFundMe page was created to support Junius, as the organizer, Stacey Terry wrote in the description that Junius was talking to her mother on the phone when she was struck. It read,
“My Auntie, Gloria, was on the phone with her daughter, Valerie, while she could overhear her husband, Lawrence Reed, telling Valerie that he was going to kill her and her kids.”
The text continued,
“Gloria then had the horrific experience of having to hear Lawrence shoot her daughter Valerie a total of 7 times, ultimately taking her life. Lawrence Reed then shot her son, who is 16 years old and her daughter who is 20 years old as they tried to flee and run out of the house. By the grace of God, they are both going to survive.”
Reports say Lawrence Reed was arrested for the murder of Valerie Junius after surrendering to SWAT personnel.
