Young Chicago woman killed by stray bullet while on the phone with her dad

 
25 year old Aaren O'Connor was hit by a stray bullet and died in a Chicago hospital two days later. She had just returned home from work that evening and was sitting in her car outside of her apartment, talking to her father on the phone. There was a fight outside of the car that she had nothing to do with, and shots were fired. One of the bullets hit her in the back of the head.


Her dad Mr O'Connor, said during the conversation she started repeatedly saying 'my head hurts' and quickly became incoherent, but neither of them knew what was wrong. he said at that point she hadn't realized she had been shot in the head, and neither did he:
"I didn't realize that I was having the last conversation with my daughter. Every few moments she said my head hurts."
"When she hung up the phone, I called her boyfriend , he then got in touch with her roommate who found her unconscious outside''.
"I would have loved to have told her that I loved her just one more time and was proud of her, she was an amazing girl".
Aaren's father also had a message for the leaders and people of Chicago who he says need to address gun violence in the city, which is spiralling out of control. A GoFundMe page has been set up by her coworkers in her memory

Very very sad. So painful. What a story. Kaii. Feeling very sad right. Unanticipated death. How many life's must we loose in US. Before the issue of gun violence is address. Is it because theirs is not affected that's why they are still nonchalant about addressing it. What a young healthy soul gone. Rest in peace my dear.

What exactly is wrong with the below statement. It is imperative that bloggers spell check and also check timelines on write ups.

25 year old Aaren O'Connor was hit by a stray bullet and died in a Chicago hospital two days later. She had just returned home from work that evening and was sitting in her car outside of her apartment, talking to her father on the phone. There was a fight outside of the car that she had nothing to do with, and shots were fired. One of the bullets hit her in the back of the head, killing her instantly

In my world there is a big difference between "instantly" and 'two days later"

but Linda na wa o. First you say she died two days later in the hospital, then you say she died instantly then again you say she was saying her head hurts after being hit by the bullet. DO you not know the meaning of the word "instantly"?
