The parking lot next to Burien’s One Source Chiropractic was packed with friends, family and community members Thursday night (Sept. 20), all together to grieve the senseless killing of Gabriela Reyes-Dominguez, 51, whose life ended when a stray bullet from a drive-by shooting across the street killed her. ‘Gaby’ worked as a receptionist in the chiropractic office located at 15217 1st Ave South, and was fatally struck by a stray bullet from a drive-by shooting on Wednesday afternoon, Sept. 19. Two suspects were arrested on Thursday. A makeshift memorial full of flowers, balloons, candles and notes was growing, and sadly, the bullet hole from the gunshot that killed her was still visible, a sad reminder of the recent tragedy.
NOTE: Due to a prior commitment, we arrived a little late to the vigil, but here is what Scott Schaefer was able to capture, including an interview with Burien Mayor Jimmy Matta (running time 4:07):
