CARNEY, MD—A GoFundMe page has been launched following a deadly shooting near Carney over the weekend.

At around 4:30 a.m. on July 10, officers responded to the 8700-block of Lackawanna Avenue (21234) in reference to a call for an assault.

Once on the scene, officers located 47-year-old Veronica Ramirez suffering from severe trauma. Ramirez was transported to an area hospital where she was pronounced dead.

While still at the location, officers also discovered 52-year-old Gerardo Sanjuan-Ramirez who was pronounced dead at the scene.

Police have not yet released any additional details.

Now, the couple’s daughter, Yarasheila SanJuan, has launched a GoFundMe page to help her and her younger brother during this difficult time.

Creating this GoFundMe is difficult for me because it means that I must accept this new harsh reality. On the morning of July 10th I lost the two most important people in my life to a tragedy, mom and dad; the ones I always hoped would be by my side.
My mom, Veronica Ramirez, was a humble, loving, and genuine soul. She was full of life and went above and beyond for her kids, daily. My dad, Gerardo Sanjuan, was a shy and quiet person but always witty around us. They both always made sure we were taken care of and now it is our turn. Veronica and Gerardo left behind my brother (18) and I (23) to make these tough afterlife decisions for them. These are decisions no one should have to make at a young age. Unfortunately, besides funeral expenses we are also left to carry our own living expenses. This is more than we can bare [sic] and any donations and/or prayers would help us greatly during these times.
