She was killed, by an unidentified male on Friday, while leaving her office in Maryland in the US after work.

One of the bullets fatally hit her during the attack. Police declared her dead on the scene.
The police are currently on the hunt for the suspect, believed to have used a handgun and fled the scene in a blue vehicle after the incident.
They described the suspect as “a black male with a thick build and black hair, wearing a dark shirt and pants.”
