Every day in the U.S. about 89 people are shot dead in one way or another. At GunMemorial.org we try to post pages for all of these people even though the circumstances of their deaths can be drastically different.

Melissa Boarts, age 36

Fatally shot on April 3, 2016 in Auburn, Alabama.

Boarts' parents called the police telling them that their daughter was bipolar and suicidal. Police pulled-over her car and shot her when she allegedly charged at them with "a weapon."
