Teen remembers mom killed in Elkhart shooting, family holds vigil
ELKHART, Ind. --- Family and friends of an Elkhart woman, who was killed in a shooting Saturday night, gathered for a vigil Sunday night.
The Elkhart County Prosecutor Vicki Becker confirmed Danielle Robinson, 34, was the victim of a shooting that happened near Morton Avenue and Short Street. Robinson’s family said the shooting was premeditated.
“She was a great woman and she didn’t deserve what happened to her,” said Myshaun Robinson, Robinson’s 15 year old son.
Elkhart Police said officers found Robinson, who was seven months pregnant according to family members, inside a home on Morton Ave. The department said officers provided immediate medical attention to her but say she was later pronounced dead at the scene.
