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.

Korryn Gaines, age 23

Fatally shot on August 1, 2016 in Randallstown, Maryland.

Korryn was killed in her home during an armed standoff with police. Police had gotten a key to her apartment from her landlord in order to serve outstanding warrants on her and a man in the apartment. The man was wanted for assault and she was wanted for the relatively minor charge of failing to appear in court to face traffic charges. Her 5-year-old son was shot and injured.
