Some people refer to it as Thursday morning. To others it was Wednesday night. At 2:30 am in East Hollywood..a transgender woman was shot one time…in the head.
During the robbery, there was a struggle, and there were shots fired, and the victim was struck one time. It appears they were struck in the head.

It’s really, really frightening for all of us, especially out here in the streets and stuff because discrimination is still very high in our community,
